|unkeybif||[options] command file ...|
unkeybif extracts BioWare KEY/BIF archives, found in many BioWare games.
KEY and BIF files are fundamentally linked: a KEY file contains file names and types, while the BIF file contains the file data itself. At the same time, a KEY file can control several BIF files.
If you want to extract all files indexed by
foo.key, you need to also specify
foo3.bif on the command. If
foo3.bif is missing,
baz.txt will not be extracted. However, listing file only requires the KEY.
