Oh dear.. I read your reply two days ago but I forgot all about it.
I sent in 'p7zip.tar.gz' and 'unrar.tar.gz' just a few hrs ago.
I have sent another email to Robert and told him NOT to put them up.
I am very sorry!
(1) mydsl/system/p7zip-4.42.tar.gz is 2.4M.
(I see this is the full 7zip which supports a great range of formats besides just 7z.)
'p7zip.tar.gz' which I submitted is the 'reduced' 7zip - the binary is called '7zr' - it supports only 7z/LZMA/BCJ/BCJ2.
It is small (176K) and is intended for use with the 'cdisplay' script (mydsl/testing/cdisplay.tar.gz) for decompressing .7z archives, so the other formats won't be used at all.
(2) mydsl/system/rar.dsl is 296K ('rar' + 'unrar'); I submitted the 'unrar' binary as 'unrar.tar.gz' (70K).
(3) I think 'unrar.tar.gz' can be abandoned since 'rar.dsl' is only a little bigger. But regarding p7zip - I still wish to submit '7zr', but I don't know what name to use. May I ask you what you think? (BTW, in Debian, '7zr' is called 'p7zip' and the full-featured '7z' is called 'p7zip-full' - maybe we could do this as well?)
Thank you very much, and very sorry for my mistake.
