Cabextract is a program to extract Microsoft Cabinet files.
It is free software with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.

Cabinet (.CAB) files are a form of archive, which Microsoft use to
distribute their software, and things like Windows Font Packs. The
cabextract program unpacks these files.

For more information, see http://www.cabextract.org.uk/
or run the command 'cabextract --help'.

Example usage:

Extracting files from a cabinet file:
$ cabextract wibble.cab

Extracting files from an executable which contains a cabinet file:
$ cabextract wibble.exe
[cabextract will automatically search executables for embedded cabinets]

Extracting files from a set of cabinet files; wib01.cab, wib02.cab, ...:
$ cabextract wib01.cab
[cabextract will automatically get the names of the other files]

Extracting files to a directory of your choice (in this case, 'boogie'):
$ cabextract -d boogie wibble.cab
[cabextract will create the directory if it does not already exist]

Listing files from a cabinet file:
$ cabextract -l wibble.cab

Testing the integrity of a cabinet file, without extracting it:
$ cabextract -t wibble.cab

---- OLD Readme ---

Ever been in the need of a tool to extract windows Cab's? ...

the search is over.

Usage: cabextract.os4 [options] [-d dir] <cabinet file(s)>

This will extract all files from a cabinet or executable cabinet.
For multi-part cabinets, only specify the first file in the set.

  -v   --version     print version / list cabinet
  -h   --help        show this help page
  -l   --list        list contents of cabinet
  -q   --quiet       only print errors and warnings
  -L   --lowercase   make filenames lowercase
  -f   --fix         fix (some) corrupted cabinets
  -p   --pipe        pipe extracted files to stdout
  -s   --single      restrict search to cabs on the command line
  -F   --filter      extract only files that match the given pattern
  -d   --directory   extract all files to the given directory
