       macunpack - Macintosh file de-archiver


       macunpack [ - options ] [ file ]


       macunpack  takes  the  Macintosh MacBinary archive specified in file (or standard input if
       none is specified) and extracts the files it contains subject to  the  options  specified.
       The  program  will  also  accept the data fork of the archive for some kinds of archive as
       standard input.


       In the absence of any options, macunpack takes the specified archive and silently extracts
       the  file(s)  it contains into MacBinary format, giving the output files ".bin" extensions
       and placing them in  the  current  working  directory.   Subdirectories  are  created  for
       embedded folders.

       -3     Write files in fork format (.info, .data and .rsrc files.)

       -f     As -3, but empty data and rsrc files are not created.

       -r     Write resource forks only (.rsrc files.)

       -d     Write data forks only (.data files.)

       -u     As  -d,  but  the  codes  for CR and LF are interchanged, the filename extension is

       -U     As -u, but there is no filename extension.

       -a     Write files in AppleShare format.  This option is only  valid  if  the  program  is
              compiled with support for some form of AppleShare.  The current directory must be a
              valid AppleShare folder.

       -s     Write extracted files to standard output in MacBinary format.

       -l     List every file extracted (and every directory/folder created etc.)

       -v     Like -l, but more verbose (implies -l.)

       -i     Do not extract, give information only (implies -l.)

       -q     Ask the user for every file/folder whether it should be extracted (implies -l.)

       -V     Gives the patchlevel of the program, and  other  information.   Other  options  are
              ignored and the program quits immediately.

       -H     Give  short  information  about  the  options.   Other  options are ignored and the
              program quits immediately.


       As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems.  Archives that  are  password
       protected and multi-file archives are not dealt with.
