uncompress a CAB file

By rgooding ·
I copied a compressed CAB file from my PC onto a unix server (AIX 4.3) and now I want to uncompress it. Is there a utility out there to do this.

Thanks

uncompress a CAB file

by TimTheToolMan In reply to uncompress a CAB file

Hi,

It might be easier to uncompress it on the PC (WinZip will do that), then tar it (plenty of PC tools will tar), copy it and tar -x at the unix end?

Cheers,
Tim.

This will extract files from Windows cab files.

1. At a DOS promt, go to the directory where your .cab files are located. Ex. c:\windows\options\cabs

2. Type the following:
extract /a win98_21.cab *.* /y
fill in the wild card with the filename.extension

You can always type extract/? to get the correct syntax.
