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. Therefore, the output is usually redirected to a file or piped through the cpio(1) utility.  

EXAMPLES
