I am not referring to linux bin files used for an install of an app. I am talking about something similar to an iso and usually has a .cue file with it - in windows you could use winiso to extract it - my question is - what can be used to extract it in linux ?
google and the forum search didn't help, I tried it already
It depends how it was compressed. These are actually a shell script with a bit of data stuffed at the end. Take a look at it and see what it uses to open it up, then have a go at opening it. some need to be parsed and common compression includes UHA, LHA, UHC, bz2, Z, gz and so on.
OK, thanks for the info guys. I was actually looking for an app that would be able to do that stuff for me. I have seen those ideas already on google thru searches.
I appreciate the info though, you are definitely on the right track for what I want, if you manage to track down an app that can perform that task without having to convert it first, I would appreciate it if you posted it.
unless AxeZ wrote his own special version of mount, i highly doubt that the standard one can do it. Actually, i am sure it can't, because i just tried it and it sput an mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, or too many mounted file systems
