This is a xadmaster client for extraction of archives using
libarchive.  It currently supports RAR5 and ZIPX files.

Note that the optional Zip portion, unlike the built-in version,
does not yet support self-extracting archives.
Self-extracting archives are still handled with the built-in
Zip client even with this installed.

How to identify which version you are running

In the Shell, type xadLibInfo:

Zip                       | 5016 | 13 |  3.3  | FILE,EXTERN,FREE(FI)
RAR5                      | ---- | 13 |  3.3  | FILE,EXTERN,FREE(FI)
                                    client version

Any lines with version numbers not matching that on this readme
do not come from this client.

Importantly, the Zip line may look like this:
Zip                       | 5016 | 13 |  1.12 | FILE

This is the Zip client built in to xadmaster.library.

You may also have a RAR (not RAR5) client:
RAR                       | ---- | 13 |  2.6  | FILE,EXTERN,FREE(FI)

If this is version 1.x then RAR4 files are not supported.
If it is version 2.x it may conflict and will need updating to v2.6.
The install script will handle this for you.

Due to compatibility issues, the libarchive client does not yet
support RAR4 files, so you still need a client specifically for RAR4.


3.3 (20.06.2019)
Decryption now uses AmiSSL. Should reduce memory usage.
Built against release version of libarchive 3.4.0

3.2 (01.05.2019)
Zip client now supports encrypted files.

3.1 (28.04.2019)
First release.
Version number starts at 3 as the intention was to obsolete the
previous RAR client.

Please note the primary download location for my software is Aminet
