  • Extract a self-extracting binary in the current directory:

{{./path/to/binary)}}

  • Test a self-extracting binary for errors:

{{./path/to/binary)}} -t

  • Print content of a file in the self-extracting binary without extraction:

{{./path/to/binary)}} -c {{path/to/filename}}

{{./path/to/binary)}} -z
