RecComp v1.0
Author   : Alexandre D'Hondt
Copyright: © 2019 A. D'Hondt
License  : GNU Affero General Public License v3.0

This tool allows to recursively compress an archive relying on Patool, a Python
 library supporting various archive formats.

Note: Password-protected compression is not supported.

positional arguments:
  files                 files to be archived

optional arguments:
  -c CHARSET            character set of random archive name (default: abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789)
  -d                    delete input files (default: False)
  -n NCHARS             length of random archive name (default: 8)
  -r ROUNDS, --rounds ROUNDS
                        number of compression rounds (default: 10)

extra arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -p, --progress        progress mode (default: False)
  -v, --verbose         verbose mode (default: False)

timing arguments:
  --stats               display execution time stats at exit (default: False)
  --timings             display time stats during execution (default: False)

Usage examples:
  rec-comp file1 file2 file3 -r 10
  rec-comp file -c abcd -n 10
  rec-comp -p

RecDecomp v2.1

Training : ZSIS CTF - Trivia - Shining (4 points)

This tool allows to recursively decompress an archive relying on Patool, a
 Python library supporting various archive formats.

Note: Password-protected compression is not supported yet. If the tool freezes
       while decompressing, it may be necessary to press enter to submit a blank
       password, which will stop decompression.

positional arguments:
  archive        input archive

optional arguments:
  -d             delete input archive (default: False)
  -p             print resulting file, if possible (default: False)

extra arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  -v, --verbose  verbose mode (default: False)

timing arguments:
  --stats        display execution time stats at exit (default: False)
  --timings      display time stats during execution (default: False)

Usage examples:
  rec-decomp archive.zip
  rec-decomp archive.zip -d
