Versatile compression tool
There are different solutions and programs available to manage compressed files. One of the most highly rated ones is PeaZip, the compression tool for Linux that's compatible with a wide range of formats, including the most popular file types on different platforms.
A compression tool for unexperienced users.
To start off, the first thing we see in this tool is a very user-friendly interface, which makes the program more usable. In fact, the program itself is focused on users that aren't very familiar with this kind of application.
Main features of PeaZip
- Capable of working with over 150 formats of compression files (7Z, RAR, TAR, ZIP, WIPZX…), installers (DEB, RPM…) and disc images(ISO, UDF, DMG…).
- Advanced file management functions (search, bookmarks, thumbnails, hashing, find duplicates, file conversion...).
- Interface inspired on disc burning programs.
- Compatible with the main distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, SUSE, Red Hat, Slackware…).
Without a doubt, a very versatile tool that allows us to open and extract compressed files from other platforms like Windows or Mac.
- May require the install of certain libraries.
