Question how do i decompress from one drive and write the file to another drive?

The how to guides tell you how to decompress with LHA and write to the same drive. But I want to decompress from the built in disk drive and write the file to the RAM disk or the second disk drive, how would i go about doing this?

just set the destination drive and/or directory at the end of the command line, like "lha blablablabla (options etc.) whatever.lha DESTINATION" .....

LhA x archive.lha ram:directory/

Make sure that you include the forward slash at the end to indicate a directory and not a file, if the directory doesn't exist it will be created.

Also, it's usually better to use x like Sane does to extract, because e will not preserve the directory structure of the archive, which can be a pain. But if you're only extracting single files I guess it makes no difference .
