Is there a program that will let me view the contents of an uncompleted rar, zip, etc? Or lets say an uncompleted torrent.

I have a tgz, which is like a rar which isn't downloaded fully, which I was DLing through bittorrent. There arent anymore seeders so I'd at least like to look at the gig that I downloaded.

Yes I googled it. I can't find the words to describe it to google simply. I downloaded a rar with a bunch of movies and pics in it, but since the torrent didnt finish. When I extract it says, stuff is missing. I already know that but want to see what I DID download.

Why would you want to view fragments and movies? The way bit torrent works is transfering parts of the file at a time. Why do you want to viewfragments of what you cant open anyway?

Thats what I was thinking too Yoda avatar dude. But if a torrent downloads a bunch of pictures and movies, it doesnt download fragments at a time to compile at the end, it actualy downloads picture by picture, movie by movie. I downloaded an un-rared torrent and was looking at each of the files as they downloaded into a folder. I opened them and they worked. This just wont work with rars.

If you have access to a Unix/Linux system, that's how you'd view an incomplete tgz.
CODE
while(!asleep()) {
                    sheep++;

But it downloads each of those in fragments as well. Torrent downloads files in fragments... not the entire torrent.

Example: If you are downloading a torrent that is a folder full of pictures of <your favorite pr0nstar here> then it will download those pictures in fragments and piece them together as fragments for that file are completed. If you have a single compressed file that is being downloaded... since that is one file it is downloading the fragments for that single particular file. This means that the file if you tried to open it or uncompress it would be corrupt as it is incomplete.

You can, but its through a windows implementation of the UNIX api. You need to get Cygwin. It is a bit difficult to set up unless you read the fine manual, but you should be fine once you get it running. You will need to know the basic BASH or Borne Shell commands.
