You may also download just the windows executable sfk.exe or the linux binary for Ubuntu or DSL. No installation, no registry entries, no DLL's - one exe handles all.

Intense users may be interested in Swiss File Knife Extended Edition (XE), which can also
read .zip, .jar, .tar.gz and .tar.bz2 file contents. Read more on that here.
