plugin handles browsing and extraction of WinAce's ACE file format and
it is needed to open ACE
archives in PeaZip.
This package is meant to provide free ACE files support as
separate plugin since UNACE is released by
WinACE as royalty free, but closed source, freeware binaries.
Note for Linux users: UNACE is a 32 bit executable, so on Linux 64 bit
systems it requires ia32-libs
to extract ACE files.
additional_formats plugin is needed to handle additional formats
supported by PeaZip: LPAQ1, LPAQ5, PAQ8F, PAQ8JD, PAQ8L (browsing and

customizes program's GUI colours and icons, themes can be
applied from Option > Theme selecting "Custom" in the Theme dropdown
menu and selecting a custom theme package i.e. xyz.theme.7z.
Default theme. Meant to integrate the application in an environment
with Windows-like look and feel and icons.
Integrate the application to an enviroment with icons similar in look
and feel to Crystal, Crystal Clear, and Tango Icons themes. Recommended
on most Linux systems.
packages can be created (or saved for back-up) using
Theme > Create Theme from current settings, a theme package
xyz.theme.7z will be created
on the desktop; it is a standard 7z archive.
Please note that system
icons (i.e. on system's context menu, and for associated
file types) are not affected by themes. On Windows, system's icons are
stored in \PeaZip\res\icons\ path and
can be edited with a suitable editor or replaced with custom icon
files; on Linux system's icons (in PNG format) are stored accordingly
the distribution and the desktop environment policies, i.e.
\opt\kde3\share\icons\ or \usr\share\icons\
To further customize themes, or to remove unwanted themes, “Manage
Themes” opens the path containing themes, that is in user’s application
data for installable versions or inside PeaZip’s folder for portable
Theme’s graphic can be edited with any graphic files editor, and
theme.txt can be edited as UTF-8 text; when finished editing the
resources the theme can be given a name and saved as package.
It is recommended to not delete or modify the default theme, saved in
Themes can be freely distributed as independent
packages, as long copyright/copyleft licenses for the graphic elements
used in the theme is respected.
If you are interested in contributing a theme for being distributed
with PeaZip please contact
me at the mail address on Support page.
The file note.readme (plain text) is inherited from the original theme,
please edit it with relevant information and credits about the new
theme if you plan to publicly release it.
Custom, user-provided icons, themes, graphic and other resources
can be found on peazip-resources
on Google Code.
This little utility is meant to help developers to get the class name
object and all of its parents: drag the cursor from the application's
StringGrid to the target object in any third parts application to get
the full class "path" of the object. The package contains compiled
Windows binary and
sources (Lazarus/FPC); LGPLv3.
SFX modules are used by 7z and FreeArc backends to create self
To use third parts
SFX modules extract and copy the modules into "\res\7z" or
"\res\arc" folder (depending if the target of the module is 7z or
FreeArc) in PeaZip's path and rename them as existing SFX modules, ie.
for 7z use 7z.sfx
(conventionally, sfx module with GUI) or 7zCon.sfx (conventionally, sfx
module with console interface).
Before that you may want to preserve a
copy of original PeaZip's sfx modules copying them into another
directory of your choice.
Those freeware modules are the very same used by 7-Zip/p7zip
