Untar is a wrapper application which acts as the front end to the 7za, tar, gzip, compress, bzip2, rar, and zip utilities. These utilities handle the complicated work, while Untar provides a pleasant and easy method to interact with the system tools.
Untar is able to uncompress files in .7z, .tar, .tar.gz, .tgz, .tar.z, .z, .gz, .svgz .Z, .tar.Z, .taz, .tar.bz, .tar.bz2, .tbz, .tbz2, .bz, .bz2, .rar, and .zip formats.
Untar is available as a free download for Mac OS X users. Source code is also included for the interested developer and is released under the GNU Public License. For those who need the additional power to also compress files, please take a look at GUI Tar.
As of February 2009, Edenwaith will no longer actively develop Untar. In our efforts to focus on current and future projects, Untar has been discontinued.
Since Untar has been released under the GNU Public License, its source code will still be freely available for others to use. Thank you to everyone who has used and contributed to Untar.
