WHAT SISOPEN DOES

Sisopen is a tool to list and extract the content of SIS files. SIS files are EPOC installation files used in Symbian-based smartphones like many S60 Nokia phones.

SYSTEMS WHERE SYSOPEN CAN RUN

Sisopen is an ANSI-C program, mainly targetted to Linux and other Unix-like systems it can be compiled almost in every system with a C compiler having zlib.

COMPILING SISOPEN

Just try

make

it should compile without problem if you have zlib installed in your system (not only the runtime, also the development files are needed).

COMPILING WITHOUT ZLIB

Defining NOZLIB at compile time makes you able to compile without zlib, but only file listing is available in this mode, files can't be extracted.

In order to compile without zlib support just try

make nozlib

USAGE

sisopen filename.sis (in order to list .sis file content)

sisopen -x filename.sis (extract files)

sisopen -v filename.sis (show a lot of information about the sis file)

sisopen -h (show a little help page)

It is possible to pass more than one file name to sisopen. Every file is processed in the order they are given. Options don't require to be passed in a specific position so

sisopen -x filename.sis

is equivalent to

sisopen filename.sis -x

LICENSE

Sisopen is released under the GPL license version 2.
