PEAZIP FOR BSD DOWNLOAD
page features experimental build of PeaZip file compressor for
systems (compiled and tested on PC-BSD).
cross-platform file archival utility / file compressor supporting
over 200 archive
formats (manage.7z, .bz2, ,ace, .cab, .gz, .iso, .rar, .tar, .zip,
.zipx archives), an
Source rar / zip files utility that supports the same wide array of
functions focused on compression
, security (encryption
calculate file hashing / checksum
file management (split and join volumes
find duplicate files
providing over multiple operating systems
and hardware platforms the same
powerful but user-friendly GUI frontend to 7-Zip / p7Zip, FreeArc, PAQ
and other Free Software backend archiving / compression technologies.
Compatibility Layer should allow to run PeaZip for
Linux binaries as alternative to native PeaZip for BSD Unix build.

to run PeaZip
file compressor utility on Darwin / Apple macOS
State of Darwin / macOS port
PeaZip is built with Lazarus/FPC IDE, and Lazarus' support for
Darwin and Apple's macOS (previously OSX)
is quickly progressing, but Carbon support is not as mature as for
other widget sets and it was not yet possible to have a sufficient
quality native Carbon build of PeaZip for Apple macOS / OSX or Darwin
However, interest in porting PeaZip to Macintosh macOS / OSX platform
application, rather than with virtualization, emulation or wrapping,
remains very high.
Running PeaZip on macOS / OSX
Apart for a native macOS build from sources, here are various ways to
run PeaZip for Windows on macOS (or
older OSX releases) at
current level of development:
virtualization software: Parallels
software) is probably the
most popular choice on macOS/OSX, but VMWare Fusion (commercial) and
alternatives are available for Macs.
Once a Windows virtual machine is set on the macOS system, the Apple
machine will run native Windows software without needing of any kind of
conversion or port - ability to interact with the physical machine
depends on the virtualization software itself.
|Using Wine, an
Open Source (free, LGPL) implementation of Microsoft Windows API,
acting as a
compatibility layer that allows to run Win32 software on macOS, OSX,
Linux operating systems.
approach to Wine-based solution is Wineskin Winery
(free, LGPL), a simple tool to build ports / wrappers of MS Windows
programs as Mac applications, as described in this
article - being
both Wineskin and PeaZip Open source software, the
ports can be either created for personal use and for re-distribution
