mksquashfs - tool to uncompress squashfs filesystems
unsquashfs [OPTIONS] FILESYSTEM [directories or files to extract]
Squashfs is a highly compressed read-only filesystem for Linux. It uses zlib compression to compress both files, inodes and directories. Inodes in the system are very small and all blocks are packed to minimize data overhead. Block sizes greater than 4K are supported up to a maximum of 64K. Squashfs is intended for general read-only filesystem use, for archival use (i.e. in cases where a .tar.gz file may be used), and in constrained block device/memory systems (e.g. embedded systems) where low overhead is needed.
-da[ta-queue] size Set data queue to size Mbytes. Default 256 Mbytes. -d[est] pathname unsquash to pathname, default "squashfs-root". -e[f] extract file list of directories or files to extract. One per line. -f[orce] if file already exists then overwrite. -fr[ag-queue] size Set fragment queue to size Mbytes. Default 256 Mbytes. -i[nfo] print files as they are unsquashed. -li[nfo] print files as they are unsquashed with file attributes (like ls -l output). -ll[s] list filesystem with file attributes (like ls -l output), but don't unsquash. -l[s] list filesystem, but don't unsquash. -n[o-progress] don't display the progress bar. -p[rocessors] number use number processors. By default will use number of processors available. -r[egex] treat extract names as POSIX regular expressions rather than use the default shell wildcard expansion (globbing). -s[tat] display filesystem superblock information. -v[ersion] print version, license and copyright information.
