Replacement for WinRar?

         Well, file splitting (breaking up a rar file by user selected byte 
size), simple GUI interface, right click and archive, double click extract, 
file preview, tunable compression ratios.  Those are just for 
starters.  It's one of the reasons I use WinRar on windows cause of all the 
stuff it does.  The biggest selling point for a BSD equivalent would be the 
ability to do both Rar and Zip and to be able to split a large archive into 
smaller pieces.  Those are the two things I like most about it.  :)  Not 
that it does them, but does them in the most idiot proof manor.  Something 
even I can't screw up!  :D
