 Short Tip: Extract Files from an RPM file

Nice tip.

"Sometimes it is necessary to extract a file from an RPM without actually installing it. This way you can extract for example binaries and check them for any malicious content before you install them to important system places. In case of src.rpms you can also directly extract a patch or spec in case you need it for your own RPM."
