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)

Code:
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

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