In need of an archiving app
- Member Since

Does anyone know of an archiving app (preferably free, as I don't have a credit card) for Mac that allows one to view the files of the archived file without actually extracting said files? I already have an app for extraction, but it doesn't allow for viewing, which I need specifically for what I'm trying to do.

Why not just make an image? It's part of the Mac OS. To view the files all you have to do is mount the image.

If it's a zip, you can already do this at the command line. The unzip command has an option for list. The syntax is:
unzip -l <file>
as follows (listing the contents of a Geekbench download)
Mikes-iMac:Downloads mike$ ls |grep .zip Geekbench-2.2.3-Mac.zip Mikes-iMac:Downloads mike$ unzip -l Geekbench-2.2.3-Mac.zip Archive: Geekbench-2.2.3-Mac.zip Length Date Time Name -------- ---- ---- ---- 0 11-02-11 13:25 Geekbench.app/ 0 11-02-11 13:25 Geekbench.app/Contents/ 0 11-02-11 13:25 Geekbench.app/Contents/Frameworks/ 0 11-02-11 13:25 Geekbench.app/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/ 0 11-02-11 13:25 Geekbench.app/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Headers/ 536 11-01-11 00:28 Geekbench.app/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Headers/Sparkle.h 668 11-01-11 00:28 Geekbench.app/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Headers/SUAppcast.h 1013 11-01-11 00:28 Geekbench.app/Contents/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Headers/SUAppcastItem.hmike

You can also zip it and use this to see what's in it: BetterZip 2 - The Next Generation of Archiving
