       cabextract  -  program  to  extract files from Microsoft cabinet (.cab)

       cabextract [-ddir] [-f] [-Fpattern] [-h] [-l] [-L] [-p] [-q] [-s]  [-t]
       [-v]  cabinet files ...

       cabextract is a program that un-archives files in the Microsoft cabinet
       file format (.cab) or any binary file which contains an embedded  cabi
       net file (frequently found in .exe files).

       cabextract  will  extract all files from all cabinet files specified on
       the command line.

       To extract a multi-part cabinet consisting of several files,  only  the
       first cabinet file needs to be given as an argument to cabextract as it
       will automatically look for the remaining files. To prevent  cabextract
       from extracting cabinet files you did not specify, use the -s option.

       A summary of options is included below.

       -d dir Extracts all files into the directory dir.

       -f     When testing or extracting cabinet files, corrupted MSZIP blocks
	      will be ignored. A warning will be printed if a corrupted  MSZIP
	      block is encountered.

       -F pattern
	      Only files with names that match the shell pattern pattern shall
	      be listed, tested or extracted. On non-GNU systems,  this  match
	      may be case-sensitive.

       -h     Prints a page of help and exits.

       -l     Lists  the  contents  of	the  given  cabinet files, rather than
	      extracting them.

       -L     When extracting cabinet files, makes each extracted files  name

       -p     Files shall be extracted to standard output.

       -q     When  extracting	cabinet  files, suppresses all messages except
	      errors and warnings.

       -s     When testing, listing or extracting cabinets which span multiple
	      files,  only  cabinet  files  given on the command line shall be

       -t     Tests the integrity of the cabinet. Files are decompressed,  but
	      not written to disk or standard output. If the file successfully
	      decompresses, the MD5 checksum of the file is printed.

       -v     If given alone on the command line, prints the version of cabex
	      tract  and  exits.  Given  with a list of cabinet files, it will
	      list the contents of the cabinet files.
