       cabextract [-v] [-h] [-l] [-q] [-L] [-f] [-ddir]   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 cabinet 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 give the first file as an argument  to  cabex­
       tract  as  it  will  automatically  look for the remaining


       A summary of options is included below.

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

       -h     Prints a page of help and exits.

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

       -q     When extracting cabinet files, supresses  all  mes­
              sages except errors and warnings.

       -L     When extracting cabinet files, makes each extracted
              file's name lowercase.

       -f     When extracting cabinet  files,  will  ignore  cor­
              rupted MSZIP blocks. A warning will be printed if a
              corrupted MSZIP block is encountered.

       -d dir Extracts all files into the directory dir .
