ark - KDE archiving tool
ark [-b] [-a] [-e] [-c] [-f suffix] [-p] [-t file] [-d] [-o directory] [KDE Generic Options] [Qt(TM) Generic Options]
Ark is a program for managing various compressed file formats within KDE. Archives can be viewed, extracted, created and modified with Ark. The program can handle various formats such as tar, gzip, bzip2, zip, rar (when the appropriate libraries or command-line programs are installed).
Ark can be used either as a stand-alone GUI program as well as a command-line program in order to perform some specific tasks.
If invoked without the -b (--batch) or -c (--add) options, Ark is started as a normal GUI program.
When the -b (--batch) option is used, Ark can be used to extract the contents of one or more files directly from the command-line, without launching its GUI.
When the -c (--add) option is used, Ark prompts for files that should be added to a new archive or to an existing archive.
-o, --destination directory
Options for adding files¶
-t, --add-to filename
-f, --autofilename suffix
Options for batch extraction¶
ark --batch archive.tar.bz2
ark -b -d archive.tar.bz2 archive2.zip
ark --add-to my-archive.zip photo1.jpg text.txt
