Library and tool for working with Microsoft cabinet archives (development files)
gcab is command line tool that can list, extract and create cabinet (.cab) archives. The Cabinet format is often used on Microsoft Windows but it can also be used on other systems with open source software such as cabextract, lcab and gcab. Unlike cabextract and lcab, which can only list and extract cabinet archives, gcab can also create them.
gcab also includes a GObject shared library, libgcab, which provides all the functionality available to the command line tool.
