ytree switches to archive-modus automatically either by choosing an archive file with the Log commando or by calling ytree from the command line with an archive file given as a command line argument.

ytree recognize the filename extensions ".F", ".Z", ".z" and ".gz" and calls the appropriate uncompressor MELT (default=melt), UNCOMPRESS (default=uncompress) and GNUUNZIP (default=gunzip -c). You may change these settings in ~/.ytree.

ytree supports following archive types and requires:

TAR-Files: gtar (tested with GNU-TAR 1.12) ARC-Files: arc (tested with arc 5.12 02/05/86) LHA-Files: xlharc (tested with xlharc V1.02 1989) ZIP-Files: unzip (tested with unzip v5.0 08/92) " " zipinfo (tested with zipinfo v1.0 08/92) ZOO-Files: zoo (tested with zoo v2.10) RAR-Files: unrar (tested with unrar v2.01 RPM-Files: rpm2cpio (tested with RedHat V6.1) " " rpm (tested with RedHat V6.1)

Archive files will be recognized by filename extension (e.g zoo, zip). TAR-Files may have following extensions:

".F", ".TFR", ".Faa", (freeze) ".Z", ".TZ", ".TZR", ".Xaa", (compress) ".z", ".gz", ".tzr", ".tz", ".xaa", ".tgz", ".TGZ", ".taz", ".TAZ", ".tpz" und ".TPZ" (gzip)

The View commando is customizeable in the [VIEWER] section of ~/.ytree:

Example:

 [VIEWER]
 .jpg,.gif,.bmp,.tif,.ppm,.xpm=xv
 .1,.2,.3,.4,.5,.6,.7,.8,.n=nroff -man | less
 .ps=ghostview
 .mid,.MID=playmidi -e
