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
 .wav,.WAV=splay
 .au=auplay
 .avi,.mpg,.mov=xanim
 .htm,.html=lynx
 .pdf,.PDF=acroread
 .mp3=mpg123

A command-line history is supported: Use cursor up/down. Use "F2" on the command-line to select directories.
