Re: How to unpackage (or unpack, unzip, extract) a chaincode?

Matthew Sykes

If you're using the new lifecycle commands, the chaincode package is a gzip compressed tar; if you're using the legacy (lscc) commands, the package is a protobuf encoded chaincode deployment spec. You'll need to unmarshal that message to get to the code package tar file.

Anyone knows how do we unpackage a chaincode? tar -xvf does not work.

$ tar -xvf mycc.1.0
tar: Unrecognized archive format
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

in above mycc.1.0 is what got installed on the peer when we ran peer chaincode install.

$ ls -al mycc.1.0
