How to expand a file with MS-DOS' expand program

I want to expand a file with expand program, like MS-DOS, but in Debian Linux. How to do it without wine and other emulators?

The file I want to expand is 256COLOR.BM_ from the Windows 3.1 installation disks.

7-zip can expand such files; in Debian, install p7zip-full, then

7z l /path/to/256color.bm_

will show information about the file, and

7z x /path/to/256color.bm_

will decompress it.
