External XAD LhA for 68k?

http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/arc/xad_lha
is for OS4 PPC and contains source code...

Who's interested in porting it back to AmigaOS 3.x 68k?
Why? Because there are some nice unpackers like VoodooX that rely on XAD library but OS3.x m68k version of XAD has a very old LhA routine builtin, unable for example to extract with VoodooX this archive (lots of errors) and many other LHAs on Aminet:

Errors are seen here too with VoodooX (and Unarc even) with your example archive, but eventually the archive is 'unpacked' as it's supposed to be...

So functionality wise you should be able to ignore those error messages. Your question however remains valid and it would be nice to have it properly working on 68k indeed.

Yep, it's not a problem (I use up-to-date "Lha x..." from shell*), but an up-to-date XAD LHA client would be useful for a number of applications...

The author kindly replied my mail and said new LHA client uses xad v13 features... So we need first xad v13 for 68k OS3.x

Who's got a ready gcc env to try and compile it for AmigaOS 3.x 68k?

Does it support lh6, lh7, lhe, etc? A lot of Amiga LhA tools seem to focus only on old LHA file formats that support lh5 max. =o
