Extract and process resources from Quake-style pak files

Project Description

expak is a GPLv3-licensed tool to extract and optionally process resources from one or more Quake-style pak files.

The main component delivered by expak installation is a pure Python module, for programmatically working with pak files. The installation also creates a command-line utility for simple resource-extraction operations.

Currently expak is compatible with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, and later 3.x. It has no dependencies outside of the standard Python modules.

The expak module documentation contains examples of using the module. Those examples range from a one-liner for listing pak file contents, up to a complete script for extracting and modifying map files for use on a CTF server.

The quakesounds application makes extensive use of expak.
