NAME
       ark - KDE archiving tool

SYNOPSIS
       ark [-b] [-a] [-e] [-c] [-f suffix] [-p] [-t file] [-d] [-o directory]
	   [KDE Generic Options] [Qt(TM) Generic Options]

DESCRIPTION
       Ark is a program for managing various compressed file formats within KDE. Archives can be
       viewed, extracted, created and modified with Ark. The program can handle various formats
       such as tar, gzip, bzip2, zip, rar (when the appropriate libraries or command-line
       programs are installed).

OPERATION MODES
       Ark can be used either as a stand-alone GUI program as well as a command-line program in
       order to perform some specific tasks.

       If invoked without the -b (--batch) or -c (--add) options, Ark is started as a normal GUI
       program.

       When the -b (--batch) option is used, Ark can be used to extract the contents of one or
       more files directly from the command-line, without launching its GUI.

       When the -c (--add) option is used, Ark prompts for files that should be added to a new
       archive or to an existing archive.

OPTIONS
       -d, --dialog
	   Show a dialog for specifying the options for a batch or add operation.

       -o, --destination directory
	   Default the extraction directory to directory. If not passed, the current path is
	   used.

   Options for adding files
       -c, --add
	   Query the user for an archive filename and add specified files to it. Quit when
	   finished.

       -t, --add-to filename
	   Add the specified files to filename. Create archive if it does not exist. Quit when
	   finished.

       -p, --changetofirstpath
	   Change the current directory to the first entry and add all other entries relative to
	   this one.

       -f, --autofilename suffix
	   Automatically choose a filename, with the selected suffix (for example rar, tar.gz,
	   zip or any other supported types).

   Options for batch extraction
       b, --batch
	   Use the batch interface instead of the usual dialog. This option is implied if more
	   than one url is specified.

       -e, --autodestination
	   The destination argument will be set to the path of the first file supplied.

       -a, --autosubfolder
	   Archive contents will be read, and if detected to not be a single folder archive, a
	   subfolder by the name of the archive will be created.

EXAMPLES
       ark --batch archive.tar.bz2
	   Will extract archive.tar.bz2 into the current directory without showing any GUI.

       ark -b -d archive.tar.bz2 archive2.zip
	   Will first show an extraction options dialog and then extract both archive.tar.bz2 and
	   archive2.zip into the directory chosen in the dialog.

       ark --add-to my-archive.zip photo1.jpg text.txt
	   Will create my-archive.zip if does not exist and then add photo1.jpg and text.txt to
	   it.
