It is much less likely that you will need to work very often with cpio archives, so we show here just a simple example of creating an archive and extracting the files from it. When creating an archive, cpio takes a list of filenames and uses them to decide which files to include in the archive:
.net Framework barcode code 128 recognizer for .net
Using Barcode scanner for .NET Control to read, scan read, scan image in .NET applications.
user@bible:~/temp> ls | cpio -vo > ../temp.cpio
Bar Code barcode library on .net
using barcode creation for visual studio .net control to generate, create bar code image in visual studio .net applications.
This lists the files in the current directory and passes the filenames to cpio, which creates an archive on standard output (the -o option), verbosely (the -v option). If you want to create an archive containing everything under the current directory, you can use find to list all the relevant paths and pipe its output to cpio:
Bar Code scanner for .net
Using Barcode decoder for .net framework Control to read, scan read, scan image in .net framework applications.
user@bible:~/temp> find . | cpio vo > ../temp.cpio
Control code-128 image with c#
generate, create code 128 code set a none for visual c# projects
To unpack an archive, use the following:
Control code 128 code set a image in .net
using barcode creation for aspx.cs page control to generate, create code 128 image in aspx.cs page applications.
user@bible:~/another_directory > cpio -ivd < temp.cpio
Control code-128 size for
to connect code 128 and code 128 barcode data, size, image with vb barcode sdk
This unpacks (the i option) the archive under the current directory, creating new directories as necessary (the -d option).

Working with zip archives
Make code 39 extended with .net
use vs .net crystal 3 of 9 barcode integrating toproduce uss code 39 with .net
The common zip archive format (associated with the DOS and Windows programs PKZIP and WinZip among others) is well supported on Linux. To unzip a zip archive, simply do the following:
Include 2d barcode on .net
using visual studio .net crystal tobuild 2d barcode on web,windows application
user@bible:~/temp> unzip
VS .NET Crystal upc code integration on .net
generate, create upc-a none in .net projects
To create a zip archive of the current directory:
Code11 printing in .net
generate, create usd8 none for .net projects
user@bible:~/temp> zip -r ~/other/ .
Ean13+5 printer for office word
using barcode integrated for word control to generate, create ean13+5 image in word applications.
This will recursively zip up the current directory and create the zip file in the directory ~/other. The program zipinfo will give a listing and information about compression ratios:
Control ean / ucc - 13 image for java

13 Working with Files
Unpacking RPM packages
Control 3 of 9 data with .net
to encode code 39 extended and code-39 data, size, image with .net barcode sdk
Typically, you can do everything you need to manipulate RPM packages using the rpm command, but it is sometimes useful to know that you can convert an RPM package to a cpio archive as follows:
Data Matrix Barcodes integrated in visual basic
using barcode generator for winforms crystal control to generate, create datamatrix 2d barcode image in winforms crystal applications.
user@bible:~/temp> rpm2cpio partimage-0.6.2-152.i586.rpm >partimage.cpio
QR Code ISO/IEC18004 barcode library in office excel
use office excel qr code printing topaint qr-codes on office excel
You can then unpack the archive under the current directory with:
Control data matrix barcode size with .net
to add data matrix ecc200 and datamatrix 2d barcode data, size, image with .net barcode sdk
user@bible:~/temp> cpio -ivd < partimage.cpio
Here again, the i option unpacks the archive, while the d option creates the necessary directories as cpio verbosely (v) operates on the archive. You will find directories under the current directory corresponding to the system locations where rpm will install the particular files. This corresponds to what you see if you look inside the rpm package with mc, for example.
Using pax
A nice alternative to tar and cpio is pax, which is capable of unpacking archives in both these formats. Its command syntax is also simpler to learn than either tar or cpio, both of which can give a new user headaches. It also offers a neater solution than tar to the problem of exactly copying an entire directory tree complete with permissions, timestamps, and symbolic links from one place to another. To create a pax archive file of the current directory, do the following:
user@bible:~/tmp> pax -wvf pe /tmp/archive.pax .
This writes (-w) verbosely (-v) the file (-f) /tmp/archive.pax, archiving the current directory (.). The -pe option indicates that we want to preserve everything that is, preserve all ownerships and permissions. To unpack the archive somewhere else, do the following:
root@bible:/another_directory # pax rvf archive.pax
Here we are verbosely (v) reading (r) from the archive file, and pax by default writes out the archived directories and files to disk under the current directory. To be sure that all the permissions and ownerships will be restored, you will need to do this as root. To list the files in the archive, simply do the following:
user@bible:/another_directory > pax -f archive.pax
If you have a gzipped tar file, you can unpack it with pax like this:
user@bible:~/tmp> pax -rzvf archive.tgz
Here the r option shows that you are reading from the archive, while the z indicates that you need gzip uncompression. To unpack a cpio archive, do the following:
user@bible:~/tmp> pax -rvf archive.cpio
Part III Using the Command Line in SUSE Linux
To copy a directory tree preserving all ownerships and permissions, do the following:
root@bible: / # pax -rvw -pe /source/ /path/to/destination/
Here you read (r) from the source directory and write (w) to the destination directory, while preserving (-p) everything (e) (in other words all ownerships and permissions).
