On Mac, if I unzip any archive, edit, and then 'compress' into .zip using the default archive tool, the format is by no means guaranteed to be the same. This will mean that the file might be considered corrupted by software attempting to read the file.

However, the default archive manager on Ubuntu, just called Archive Manager as far as I can tell, has the capability I desire, and can make edits seamlessly to archives of any supported format. I can 'extract' files, but I can also edit the temporary files the archive tool creates, and they will be saved to the archive in the same format.

I could not figure out how to download the Ubuntu Archive Manager for Mac, so what is the closest alternative?
