See if you have "unzip" installed. If not, see if you have "gzip" installed (Check the man page - look at the -d option). If none of the above are there, you may need to install something, since I don't think "uncompress" would understand the compression... I may be wrong though. Heck, try "uncompress" too...

Are you sure that you have ".zip" files on your HP-UX server?

OR could they possibly be ".Z" files?


To uncompress files on HP-UX simply type:

uncompress <filename>

If these files are in fact .ZIP files... I would suspect they were "zipped" on some other platform than HP-UX.

Yes, that's why I need to ask any tools in HP that can support that kind of third party *.zip file. Thx.
