The utility sfxcompress is a bash script used to pack and encrypt the current directory on a self-extracting file. It also includes the calculation of the MD5 function to check if the compressed file is correct.
- It packs and encrypts (if the user wants) the current directory on a self-extracting archive.
- The file generated can be deflated on any UNIX/Linux standard platform.
- It stores the creation timestamp as metadata, and shows it when deflated.
- It stores the MD5 cheksum, and shows it when deflated.
- The user can choose the type of compression: bzip2, gzip or 7zip.
- If the file .exclude exists in the currente directory, the script will exclude the files given (wildcards allowed).
- It uses the GNU PG encryption algorithm.
