This tools allows to extract files directly from an archive hosted at a remote HTTP server.
Underneath the hood we use 7-Zip-JBinding library (based on 7-zip) to extract files. This tool was made with the purpose of (for example) extracting a file from a big ISO files somewhere on the Internet without need to download the whole ISO file.
All the archives supported by 7-zip are supported by this tool, this includes:
auto (default), zip, tar, split, rar, rar5, lzma, iso, hfs, gzip, cpio, bzip2, 7z, z, arj, cab, lzh, chm, nsis,ar, rpm, udf, wim, xar, fat, ntfs
Here is the syntax and examples:
$ java -jar re7zip.jar Usage: java -jar re7zip.jar [OPTIONS] Options: /t -t archive filetype: auto (default), zip, tar, split, rar, rar5, lzma, iso, hfs, gzip, cpio, bzip2, 7z, z, arj, cab, lzh, chm, nsis, ar, rpm, udf, wim, xar, fat, ntfs /a -a archive filename or URL location of archive /e -e filename to extract out of the archive /l -l list content of archive /o -o output filename for the extracted file /v -v show version info Example: java -jar re7zip.jar /t=iso /a=http://test.com/test.iso /e=some\file.txt /o=file.txt java -jar re7zip.jar /t=iso /a=http://test.com/test.iso /l java -jar re7zip.jar -t=iso -a=http://test.com/test.iso -e=some/file.txt -o=file.txt java -jar re7zip.jar -t=iso -a=http://test.com/test.iso -lThe tool will run on 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) version of Windows, MacOS and Linux.
