Offset File Unzipper
Offset File Unzipper is a lightweight application developed to extract data that is found in raw files, zip archives, packets and executables.
It’s based on the zlib library and the DEFLATE compression algorithm meaning that Offset File Unzipper is capable of extracting files from virtually any archive.
Offset File Unzipper doesn’t display a graphic user interface because it is a command line tool. To use it you need to issue various commands from within the interpreter. The application enables you to scan for zip / gzip data from inside the source file providing you specify an offset for it from where the scan starts.
It’s a less popular method of extracting data but because it doesn’t have an interface, your system doesn’t waste as much resources on it. This means that it can do its job when working with large files without slowing your computer down.
Since the application doesn’t display a GUI in the traditional sense, you don’t get to see right away what it can do but it does offer a short description for of all its functions and presents you with all the commands that you can use.
Offset File Unzipper enables you to unzip all the data located in the source file and allows you to choose the location where they are stored. You also get to extract zip blocks that are located and dump them in their native compressed form.
To sum things up, Offset File Unzipper might not be the easiest approach in unzipping archives and extracting data but it is an effective application nonetheless.
