Software News   Software News : Cranu (v0.1) BETA released for OS4
   posted by xeron on 7-Feb-2006 23:45:52 (2071 reads)
Cranu 0.1 BETA has been released!

Cranu is an OS4 native GUI for various archivers. Cranu sports a simple, easy to use ReAction GUI. It comes with profiles for LhA, LZX, Zip, tar.gz and tar.bz2, but it can be extended with external profiles!


Download it now from my homepage.

It should also soon arrive on OS4Depot.

Cranu is Freeware, but if you use it regularly, you are encouraged to donate via PayPal. Instructions are included in the docs!

(for the curious: it is called Cranu because it does the opposite to UnArc)

I'm a simple kind of guy and need things spelled out.

Why should I use this instead of Unarc that comes with OS4?

Well, considering the description says it does the OPPOSITE of "UnArc," I'm guessing you'd use this to actually create archives rather than extract 'em...

Hi Peter,

->"...Cranu is an OS4 native GUI for various archivers...

I just tried a dir with .lzx 1.21 -- worked great!


Umm, 'cranu' spelled backwards is clever! Thanks...

@George

It is not a replacement for UnArc, it is complementary. Cranu makes archive, UnArc extracts them.
