Pacifist

Version: 3.2.14 || Release Date: 2014-07-08 || License: Shareware ($20) Developer: CharlesSoft | App Owner: bizarropirate

Pacifist 2.5.2 is a shareware application that opens Mac OS X .pkg package files, .dmg disk images, and .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, and .xar file archives and allows you to extract individual files and folders out of them. This is useful, for instance, if an application which is installed by the operating system becomes damaged and needs to be reinstalled without the hassle of reinstalling all of Mac OS X. Pacifist is also able to verify existing installations and find missing or altered files*, and Pacifist can also examine the kernel extensions installed in your system to let you see what installer installed them, and whether the installer was made by Apple or a third-party.

helped me to downgrade from quicktime 7.4 to 7.3.1 (QT 7.4 makes lotsa audio/video applications crash). great!

Handy tool when you need to extract stuff from pkg and mpkg installers- very useful when hunting for binaries on the install disk.

It's great!
Just works!
