     mkextunpack — extracts the contents of a multikext (mkext) archive

     mkextunpack [-v] [-d output_directory] mkext_file

     The mkextunpack program list the contents of a multikext file,
     mkext_file, or unarchives the contents into output_directory (which must
     exist).  The -v option causes mkextunpack to print the name if each kext
     as it finds them.

     mkextunpack exits with a zero status upon success.	 Upon failure, it
     prints an error message and exits with a nonzero status.


     The mkext file format doesn't record the original filenames of the kexts,
     so mkextunpack has to guess at what they are.  It does this by using the
     value of the CFBundleExecutable property of the kext's info dictionary.
     (Project Builder sets this to the base name of the kext bundle by
     default, but the developer can change it.)	 If that property doesn't
     exist, the last component of the CFBundleIdentifier is used.  Duplicates
     have an incrementing index appended to the name.  Kexts that have no exe‐
     cutable or CFBundleIdentifier are named “NameUnknown-n.kext”, where n is
     a number.
