Unpacker tool with DWIM

Latest on Hackage:0.1

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

hunp (written in all lower-case, pronounced like "hump", previously written with
an umlaut (hünp)) is a small tool which automagically extracts anything you pass
to it, the way you want it. It recognizes a bunch of different file extensions,
such as rar, gz, zip, etc. and can easily be customized using your own
configuration file.

Here are a few examples which should give you the idea...

$ hunp ~/download/lollerskates.tar.gz
Found ~/download/lollerskates.tar.gz
Calling "tar zxvf ~/download/lollerskates.tar.gz"

$ hunp ~/download/Lollerskates.S01E03/
Found ~/download/Lollerskates.S01E03/lol.s01e03.r00
Calling "unrar x ~/download/Lollerskates.S01E03/lol.s01e03.r00"

-q --quiet suppress hunp's stdout
-Q --stfu suppress hunp'sstdout and stderr
-d --default prints the default configuration
-v --version prints the version

You can use your own configuration by creating the file ~/.hunp/hunp.conf. The
file format is pretty simple and you can get a good start by running "hunp -d >
~/.hunp/hunp.conf", which will put the default configuration in that file.

** Format
The configuration file needs to be on the following format:
reg1,reg2 command
reg3 command
reg4,reg5,reg6 command

"regX" means a regular expression (Perl-compatible) and command is any command
that you would normally execute in the shell to unpack a file matching one of
the corresponding regular expressions. The regular expressions are read
left-to-right, top-to-bottom and will stop on the first match. Each command
should contain %s as a whole word, i.e. no quotation marks or other stuff is
allowed around it. Note that the delimiter between regular expressions and
commands is a literal tab character. It is allowed however to use more than one

unrar x '%s' <- invalid
unrar x %s <- valid
unrar x %s> hello <- invalid

- None.

If you're not interested in the bleeding-edge version of hunp, just
use cabal-install:

$ cabal install hunp
