    This might sound complicated.

    You can extract all the files using 7-zip software.

    Inside the debian file are two files, data.tar.gz and control.tar.gz

    control.tar.gz is used to tell the debian file the author name depencies and other things.

    data.tar.gz is the actual information and it includes the files and which directories they go to.
