rpm2cpio


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 archive 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 standard output is a terminal. There-
     fore,  the  output  is usually redirected to a file or piped
     through the cpio(1) utility.

EXAMPLES
     Example 1: Converting an rpm file
