soundconverter - convert sound files to other formats SYNOPSIS
soundconverter [options] [file...] DESCRIPTION
soundconverter is a simple tool for converting sound files to other formats. It can work from the command line, but is really meant for interactive use in the GNOME environment. OPTIONS
-h, --help Print out a usage summary. -b, --batch Convert in batch mode, from command line, without a graphical user interface. You can use this from, say, shell scripts. -m, --mime-type arg Set the output MIME type for batch mode. The default is audio/x-vorbis. Note that you probably want to set the output suffix as well. -q, --quiet Be quiet. Don't write normal output, only errors. -d, --debug Print additional debug information. -s, --suffix arg Set the output filename suffix for batch mode. The default is .ogg. Note that the suffix does not affect the output MIME type. -t, --tags Show tags for input files instead of converting them. This indicates command line batch mode and disables the graphical user inter- face. -j, --jobs= Force number of concurent conversions. Default is one per present CPU. AUTHOR

ark - KDE archiving tool SYNOPSIS
ark [-b] [-a] [-e] [-c] [-f suffix] [-p] [-t file] [-d] [-o directory] [KDE Generic Options] [Qttm 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 in- stalled). 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 Will first show an extraction options dialog and then extract both archive.tar.bz2 and into the directory chosen in the dialog. ark --add-to photo1.jpg text.txt Will create if does not exist and then add photo1.jpg and text.txt to it.
