xar: An extensible archiver1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0]

XAR stands for eXtensible ARchiver. XAR is a new archive format, library, and archiver to meet modern archival needs. It can archive Extended Attributes and ACLs for Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X 10.4 systems and resource forks and Finder metadata on Mac OS X 10.3. XAR can extract files using either numeric (uid/gid) or symbolic (username/groupname) file ownerships, saving the hassle of remapping uids/gids to the correct users. Python bindings, Cocoa bindings, and a Finder Contextual Menu Plugin are available separately.
