C:\Users\julien\EnergyPlus\datasets\FMUs>C:\EnergyPlusV9-4-0\PreProcess\FMUParser\parser --printidf ShadingController.fmu

This creates a ShadingController/ folder and a tmp.idf

Here is the parser help:

$ parser --help
        parser - parse xml file

        parser OPTION...FMUFILE...[-name objNam]

        The parser parses informaiton in modelDescription.xml file in functional mock-up unit for co-simulation.

        -d, --delete
                delete the unpacked fmu folder
        -h, --help
                print help information
        -p, --printidf
                print temporary IDF file for Energyplus
        -u, --unpack
                unpack the FMU
        -v, --verbose
                print debug information. It is the only option that can combine with other options.
        -n, --name
                extract the fmu in folder objNam. The default folder name is fmu's name without the ".fmu".

        To generate a temporary IDF file from a fmu named havc.fmu in Linux
                parser -p hvac.fmu

        To unpack the fmu havc.fmu in a folder called MyFMU in linux
                parser -u havc.fmu -n MyFMU
