    They still work fine on the newest AmigaOS, 4.1, and will continue to work on future releases (4.2, etc.) as well But I know what you mean: I really wish Linux had those.

      Linux could do that. Then someone would have to go around to every program and patch it to use the library. That would be a lot of effort for not much gain.

          You would not HAVE to go around and patch every program, but if you patch a program or two these programs would instantly benefit from being able to handle lots of archive formats transparently.

            Hmmm, perhaps! libarchive looks nice from a initial point of view.
