For anyone interested in pbzx streams, the following command line tool can unpack the xz frames from stdin, then echo to stdio for piping to `cpio` for unarchiving. Implemented in simple C:
On the eve of the (likely) release, I have updated the parser. When compiled with liblzma, example usage to expand to the current directory is `pbzx <pkg> cpio -idmu`. The library requires autopoint to build (gettext, automake, autoconf, libtool), and its archive can be linked in directly for a single executable (attached).
Finally, to those who would build on early work done by others, then turn around and bundle it in shareware, without publishing a specification of the format or example code, shame.

My computer has an update process that auto-restarts it around 3 am. Sometimes, upon restart, a number of .xar files are generated which Excel tries & fails to open, preventing it from executing automated processes I've set up for the morning.

How do I prevent the .xar files from being generated?

.xar files are Auto recovery files, probably created because your restart doesn't gracefully exit Excel.

You can disable auto recover on a workbook by going to the office button, excel options, save, AutoRecover exceptions for: and then checking 'Disable AutoRecover for this workbook only'.

If you do this for the workbooks that you're update process uses it should prevent the failure you're experiencing.
