MACUNPACK(L)									     MACUNPACK(L)

NAME
       macunpack - Macintosh file de-archiver

SYNOPSIS
       macunpack [ - options ] [ file ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       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  embed-
       ded 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
	      .text.

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

       -a     Write files in AppleShare format.  This option is only valid if the program is com-
	      piled  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 pro-
	      gram quits immediately.

BUGS
       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.
