SYNTAX

amigadepacker [-c] [-h] [-o outfile] [-p] [-v] FILE ...

DESCRIPTION

amigadepacker depacks compressed Amiga formats. PowerPacker, XPK SQSH, MMCMP and StoneCracker 4.04 (S404) formats are supported. Amigadepacker will automatically determine the compressed format by content. Among other things, the tool is useful for playing packed Amiga music formats with uade (1).

If no files are given for the amigadepacker, the data is read from stdin. If some files are given, it tries to unpack them inplace, i.e. overwriting the given files with unpacked data. If a single file and "-c" is given, unpacked data is written to stdout. If a single file and "-o outfile" is given, unpacked data is written to file named "out".

The tool can also be used to decrypt powerpacker encrypted files. That operation will take a few hours.

OPTIONS

-c Unpack to stdout (when regular files have been given as parameters)
-h Display help
-o outfile, --output-file outfile
  Write decrunched data into outfile instead of overwriting the packed file
-p Pretend to unpack, but do not. Prints names of packed files to stderr. Pretend mode always returns success if arguments are valid. This is useful for searching packed files.
-v Display version information

EXAMPLES

Unpack a file:

amigadepacker foo

Unpack a file from stdin to stdout: amigadepacker < foo > foo.depacked

Find all packed files under /path, but do not unpack anything (--pretend): find /path/ -type f -print0 |xargs -0 amigadepacker --pretend --
