Jani,Jani, you shouldn't speak of things you don't know yet:

???? What do you say Jani? It can add, extract, delete, test and
create exe archives after opening it.

An archive downloaded from the web is put in /tmp. I just tried now
with Xarchiver 0.4.6, the archive is corrected accessed using /tmp, I
tried extracting a file and it is correctly extracted; I tried viewing

when speaking be sure to know what you say. I spent a LOT of hours in
coding Xarchiver, improving it over and over again and it's not
correct by you to spit upon it.
