Supported Archives

By default, following archives are supported.

        LHA, Info-ZIP/UNZIP, ZOO, RAR  ;; full-access
        GNU TAR('tgz, 'tar)            ;; read-only

If your archiver can include multiple files in one archive, you have a possibility use it as an archiver of Wanderlust (ARJ/UNARJ, ARC is one of the candidate. TAR is supported read-only because it cannot delete file in the archive (mv)).

@command{gzip}, @command{bzip}, @command{bzip2} cannot be used as an archiver of Wanderlust because they cannot include multiple files. Archivers that cannot extract files to standard output are also not supported.

OS specific information about archiver.

Behaviors of the following archivers are confirmed by further experiences. (`*' mark means recommended archiver).
