Some use cases for commandline options

  • Extracting a single file into the current directory, automatically creating a subfolder

ark --batch --autosubfolder lala.tar.gz

  • Same, with a dialog

ark --batch --autosubfolder --dialog lala.tar.gz

  • Extract lots of archives into a single directory

ark --batch --destination /tmp lala1.zip lala2.tar lala3.rar

  • Same, but use a subfolder

ark --batch --destination /tmp --subfolder mystuff lala1.zip lala2.tar lala3.rar

  • Extract lots of archives into separate directories

ark --batch --destination /tmp --autosubfolder lala1.zip lala2.tar lala3.rar

  • Into a single subfolder

ark --batch --subfolder lala.tar.gz
