untarka

Untarka extracts TAR (Unix Tape ARchive) files without calling any external programs. It supports and autodetects multiple compression methods (.tar, .tar.Z, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .Z, .gz, and .bz2). Unix devices, sockets, hard links, symlinks, owners, and permissions are ignored during extraction.

    Get it from

    http://sources.redhat.com/bzip2/

    If you use Linux, it might be available as a package in your distribution.

    You can try untarka without bzip2 support. Just remove the -DHAVE_BZ2LIB from the gcc command line.

    You can download the untarka.exe from the same place, but Freshmeat doesn't have a field for .exe files.

    Comes in .tar.gz...
    I needed this for a Windows box to grab a file in .tar.gz format, but the program itself comes in a .tar.gz format :/

    So you have to get a different program that comes in a .exe or .zip format first...
