sqfscat: Display the contents of one or more files from a squashfs filesystem.
$ sqfscat ${filesystem-squashfs} ${file1 file2 ---}
try on your machine

The command "sqfscat" extracts the contents of a squashfs filesystem.

Here's a breakdown of the command syntax:

  • "${filesystem-squashfs}" refers to the path or filename of the squashfs filesystem file. This file contains a compressed and read-only file system.
  • "${file1 file2 ---}" denotes one or more files or directories inside the squashfs filesystem that need to be extracted.

The "sqfscat" command will extract the specified files and directories from the squashfs filesystem and make them available on the local file system.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
