Excecuting CPIO in windows 2000 via DOS
Posted on 2003-03-06
I am currently trying to extract a cpio file from a Dos shell within windows 2000. This file is coming from a Unix environment.
The line I want to execute is
cpio -icvBdmu < filename.cpio
I have downloaded an application called UnixDos which executes unix commands from within Windows 2000. However, this does not allow you to pass the switch B to the command CPIO. Therefore I could only use:
cpio -icvdmu < filename.cpio
When executed the following erros message "Out of Phase -- reading next block" continuously repeats until I break out of it. The UnixDos does not seem to refer how you can set Block size to XXXX anywhere.
My question is does anyone know what is the best way to extract a cpio file in windows? Is it possible to pass the above switches?
