wwtdatatool cabinet unpack

The cabinet unpack extracts the files packed into a WWT “file cabinet” container file. WWT data files that use the “file cabinet” format include layer files (.wwtl) and tour files (.wtt).


wwtdatatool cabinet unpack {CABINET-PATH}
  • The CABINET-PATH argument gives the path to the cabinet file that will be unpacked.


$ wwtdatatool cabinet unpack NeedsManualFixing.WTT


The new files will be created in the current directory, or subdirectories thereof.

The code that processes the paths as specified inside the cabinet file is pretty naive. If you manually create a file with funky elements like parent-directory refereneces (..) or non-ASCII file names, it is quite possible that you’ll get weird results.
