Is there a way to extract files of tar.7z format using command line tools in Ubuntu?
I want to extract some .exe files from directory "system" only because those .exe files might be present in other directories too but I am interested only in the files from "system". All I need is the 7z command; I'll figure out how to call 7z from the script. Thanks for your help.
If I have an archive, for example, some.zip that contains one or more files, how can I extract only one file (I know the name of the file) with 7-Zip from the command line in Windows?
Use 7-Zip on the command line. Compress, extract, archive and optimize with the 7z.exe executable.
7z.exe is the command-line tool version of 7-Zip software allowing you to execute popular commands from system terminal. Use this app to compress, extract, test, rename, list, add, update archive files. This version works only with Windows. p7zip is the command line version of 7-Zip for Linux and Unix.
e : Extract files from archive (without using directory names). h : Calculate hash values for files. i : Show information about supported formats.
A 7-Zip file with the extension .7z is a compressed file format that can be extracted using p7zip tool in Linux. p7zip is available for most Linux systems
So 7-Zip extracts files from archive to temp folder and then 7-Zip notifies Windows Explorer about paths of these temp files.
This next command line shows how to create a solid 7z archive of program files (executables). It uses multithreading mode, which means it will be fast on a dual core
