 Simple Self Extracting Archives

Linux.org.mt tells us how to create self-extracting archives.

"Linux provides all the commands necessary to create compressed archives and re-extract them, as well as run complex installation scripts. So, why not automate things a bit? This article explains how to create an "executable archive" that, when executed, extracts itself into a directory and, optionally, starts an installation script."
