expand extracts a file stored in a cabinet file (.cab).

Usage

wine expand source_file destination_file

source_file - file name of the cabinet file

destination_file - path and filename of file to be extracted.

Note: Wine's expand does not support all the command line options available from the Microsoft version of the tool.

There is a third party tool called cabextract available on many Linux distributions which supports many advanced features not yet supported by expand. Cabextract is free software under the GPL.

Examples

If you have a file called cow.cab which contains a file named moo.txt you could extract it with:

wine expand cow.cab moo.txt
