Description

Just like with Dolphin filemanager in a GUI, I want to be able to open an archive file like a .tgz, navigate to a file inside the archive, delete it, then replace it with another file. Alternatively, I would like to edit it in-place (whether it's a binary or text file).

With MC, I can only open the archive and see the files within. When I select a file and try to delete it by pressing F10, I get an error message

Cannot remove file "...." Function not implemented (38)

I am using the MC version that's installed in Unraid server's Linux distribution based on Slackware
