Simple tool to auto-detect (potentially nested) compressed file formats and decompress any combination of them using libarchive, thus unifying zcat/bzcat/lzcat/xzcat/etc in a single (static, if you need it) binary.

IMPORTANT: this tool (with some improvements) was merged into upstream libarchive as "bsdcat" (see libarchive github pull/70) - use that one, if available.

Features

  • libarchive
  • gzip
  • bzip2
  • xz
  • lzma
