NAME

ratz - read a tar gzip archive

SYNOPSIS

ratz [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

ratz extracts files and directories from a tar gzip archive on the standard input. It is a standalone program for systems that do not have pax(1), tar(1) or gunzip(1). Only regular files and directories are extracted; all other file types are ignored.

.exe files generated by sear(1) are fully functional ratz executables, so any ratz option may be used on a sear file. This allows sear file contents to be examined and extracted without executing any embedded installation scripts.

OPTIONS

-c, --cat|uncompress

Uncompress the standard input and copy it to the standard output.
-l, --local

Reject files that traverse outside the current directory.
-m, --meter

Display a one line text meter showing archive read progress.
-n, --convert

In ebcdic environments convert text archive members from ascii to the native ebcdic. On by default; -n means --noconvert.
-t, --list

List each file path on the standard output but do not extract.
-v, --verbose

List each file path on the standard output as it is extracted.
-V
Print the program version and exit.
