Extract InstallShield CAB files with unshield #

IZArc2Go unpacked a certain EXE nicely, but could do nothing with the InstallShield cabinet file inside. Universal Extractor was similarly stymied. Thankfully, the SynCE project had coded unshield for just this purpose, and it worked like a charm:

$ unshield -d destination_dir x data1.cab
