How to unzip "ship.db.lnx32.cpio.gz"

I was trying to unzip "ship.db.lnx32.cpio.gz" linux software ( file but i am getting below error message.

oracle@local]$ gunzip ship.db.lnx32.cpio.gz

can't gunzip "ship.db.lnx32.cpio.gz" is invalid format.

During downloading time file already is unzip(uncompressed) but ".gz" extention is there.


just need to extract software file through 'cpio' command.

oracle@local]$ cpio -idmv < ship.db.lnx32.cpio.gz

To my mind exist some types of tools for solving problems and one of them is the next. It solved out all my problems with zip files and probably will help with like issues - how to fix a zip file cracked.
