extract bin files??


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.

either I just don't understand what you mean (what it has to do with what i was asking) or it doesn't address the question.

I am looking for a tool that can used to extract or open the exact same kind of bin file you would have in windows if, for example you took a cd and created an image with it.

use bin2iso to make it iso file then mount the iso or just try to mount the bin file just the same way you'd mount the iso file

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.

Thanks for the input.

Write a shell script that will do that for you using mount.

Does ne1 know why I get this error or what it means?

# mount gis3-x-streem.bin -t iso9660 -o loop /mnt/iso

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, or too many mounted file systems

Ok, compile loopback into kernel.

I've searched in information on how to achieve that, but were unsuccessful.
Do you have an URL or some info on this subject?

loopback is nearly always compiled into a kernel just fine, i've been searching google for mounting bin/cue's and i cna't find anything, i really doubt it's possible.

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
