This answer and this one suggest p7zip to work with 7zip-archives under Linux. I can see option for compressing and decompressing. But how can I get a content-listing of an archive, without decompressing it?

7z l archive.7z

lists the content

Source: 7z --help

The p7zip package does not have an executable called 7z. – Dennis Nov 29 '11 at 17:06
Oh, I see. It comes from p7zip-full. – choroba Nov 29 '11 at 17:48

The executable p7zip of the package p7zip does not have this function.

If you install p7zip-full, you can use the executable 7z which does.

7z -h shows you the basic syntax.
