nomarch(1)							Archive Extraction							nomarch(1)

nomarch - extract `.arc' archives SYNOPSIS
nomarch [-hlptUv] [archive.arc] [match1 [match2 ... ]] DESCRIPTION
nomarch lists, extracts, or tests `.arc' archives. (An alternate extension sometimes used was `.ark'; these work too.) This is a very out- dated file format which should certainly not be used for anything new, but you may still need an extraction utility, and here it is. :-) The default action is to extract all files in the specified archive; see OPTIONS below for how to do other things instead. OPTIONS
-h give terse usage help. -l list files in archive. If verbose listings are enabled, it shows the filename, compression method, compressed/uncompressed size, date/time, and CRC; but by default, it just shows the filename, uncompressed size, and date/time. -p extract to standard output, rather than to separate files. -t test files in archive (more precisely, check file CRCs). -U use uppercase filenames; more precisely, preserve original case from archive. -v give verbose output (when used with `-l'). archive.arc the archive to operate on. match1 etc. optionally specify which archive members to list/extract/test. Those which match any of these filenames/wildcards are processed. Wildcard operators supported are shell-like `*' and `?', but don't forget to quote arguments which use these (e.g. `nomarch foo.arc '*.bar''). EXTRACTING MULTIPLE ARCHIVES
nomarch follows the `unzip'-like practice of working on only one archive per run, with further `filenames' given on the command-line actu- ally specifying files to extract (or whatever). The easiest way to work on multiple files with nomarch is simply to run it multiple times using for; for example: for i in *.arc; do nomarch $i; done The above would extract all archives in the current directory. USING THE PROGRAM FROM EMACS
Emacs's arc-mode facility lets you work with various kinds of archive file directly from the editor. Making it use nomarch for extracting `.arc' files isn't too hard. Just add the following to your ~/.emacs file: (setq archive-arc-extract '("nomarch" "-U")) BUGS
The CRC used by the format is only 16-bit, so `-t' is a less-than-perfect test. One compression method, obsolete even by `.arc' standards :-), isn't supported yet. This is partly because I've yet to find a single file which uses it, despite testing an awful lot of files. Subdirectories in Spark archives are extracted as the `.arc'-format files they really are, which may not be terribly convenient. SEE ALSO
