Read/test/extract ACE 1.0 and 2.0 archives in pure python.

Project description

This single-file, pure python 3, no-dependencies implementation is intended to be used as a library, but also provides a stand-alone unace utility. As mostly pure-python implementation, it is significantly slower than native implementations, but more robust against vulnerabilities.

This implementation supports up to version 2.0 of the ACE archive format, including the EXE, DELTA, PIC and SOUND modes of ACE 2.0, password protected archives and multi-volume archives. It does not support writing to archives. It is an implementation from scratch, based on the 1998 document titled “Technical information of the archiver ACE v1.2” by Marcel Lemke, using unace 2.5 and WinAce 2.69 by Marcel Lemke as reference implementations.
