The description of 7-zip contains DEBs' extraction.
However, 7z doesn't work with DEBs. Here is attached a
.deb to try on it. DEBs are the debian binaries (like
RPM for Redhat and Mandrake).

    p7zip 4.12 provides two programs :
    - 7za
    - 7z with its plugins

    By default, "make" builds only 7za.
    If you want to build 7z with its plugins, use "make 7Z".
    Remark : this build works only for Mac OS X and Unix
    that provide "dlopen".

    7za is a stand-alone executable.
    In order to have an executable with a reasonable size,
    7za understands only common archives (7z, zip, gzip, tar,
    bzip2).

    7z uses plugins to understand the common archives and also
    cab, arj, cpio, rpm and deb archives.

    So, if you want to list files from a deb archive :
    7z l my_archive.deb
