NAME
       rpm2cpio - convert Red Hat Package (RPM) to cpio archive

SYNOPSIS
       rpm2cpio [file.rpm]

DESCRIPTION
       The  rpm2cpio  utility converts the .rpm file specified as its sole argument to a cpio ar-
       chive on standard output. (See NOTES.) If no argument is given, an rpm stream is read from
       standard  input.  In both cases, rpm2cpio will fail and print a usage message if the stan-
       dard output is a terminal. Therefore, the output is usually redirected to a file or  piped
       through the cpio(1) utility.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1 Converting an rpm file
