libarchive 3.3.2 has been ported to OS/2-ArcaOS-eCS:

- Hobbes.

LibArchive is a Multi-format archive and compression library

The libarchive library features:

    * Support for a variety of archive and compression formats.
    * Robust automatic format detection, including archive/compression combinations such as tar.gz.
    * Zero-copy internal architecture for high performance.
    * Streaming architecture eliminates all limits on size of archive, limits on entry sizes depend on particular formats.
    * Carefully factored code to minimize bloat when programs are statically linked.
    * Growing test suite to verify correctness of new ports.
    * Works on most POSIX-like systems (including FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, etc.)
    * Supports Windows, including Cygwin, MinGW, and Visual Studio.

The bsdtar and bsdcpio command-line utilities are feature- and performance-competitive with other tar and cpio implementations:

    * Reads a variety of formats, including tar, pax, cpio, zip, xar, lha, ar, cab, mtree, rar, and ISO images.
    * Writes tar, pax, cpio, zip, xar, ar, ISO, mtree, and shar archives.
    * Automatically handles archives compressed with gzip, bzip2, lzip, xz, lzma, or compress.
    * Unique format conversion feature.
