Project Summary

A simple Python wrapper for detecting an archive's format and then extracting it, only generating a containing folder if the archive doesn't provide one. (A "Do What I Mean" extraction wrapper)

Unball's goal is to be able to recognize and, if possible, extract formats that other authors may not have even heard of, let alone considered supporting.

It is mostly written in Python, but Ohloh reports it as being mostly C because it includes a copy of the unzoo source code in the contrib folder for use on 64-bit Linux.

At present, it is being incrementally rewritten to also support use as an abstraction layer for use in other Python applications.
