I need something like rar to archive/compress with password protection. Unfortunatly, rar is Masked.

Is there any alternative ? (I would like to avoid the zip format...)

thx.

rar and unrar are not masked: http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=rar

"emerge sync && emerge -v rar unrar" will do the trick most likely

or else try "emerge -v p7zip", which is the much better opensource .zip-type
