Opening Archive Files in the CyVerse Data Store

It is recommended that you first unpack most archive files before you upload to the Data Store. It is possible to open Tar files using icommands. Other archive formats will be added in a future release, along with expanded functionality.

You also can access applications in the Discovery Environment General Utilities folder that allow you to compress and decompress files using gunzip, tar, bunzip, and GNU tar.

Tar

iCommands has a tool for unpacking tar archive files called ibun. Full documentation is available from the iRODS website. Here is a quick start example:

  • For this example, filename.tar is the archive and new is the new directory into which it will be unpacked:
    ibun -x filename.tar new

Zip, Bz2, or Tar.gz

You cannot currently open .zip, Bz2, or Tar.gz files once they are uploaded. You can access applications in the Discovery Environment General Utilities folder that allow you to compress and decompress files using gunzip, tar, bunzip, and GNU tar.
