Extract contents of a .SIS File (Symbian OS in mobile phones)

We sometimes need to see the contents of a sis file in order to know more about a particular software.

Here is a simple perl script to extract the contents of a sis file. Yes, no use of any software!!

Suppose the sis file has name "theFile.sis".

Type in terminal:- $perl unsis.pl theFile.sis ./

to extract in the current folder.

NOTE:- Make sure that the two files (SisFile.pm & unsis.pl)  are in the same folder.

Download the two files from here.
