If java is installed, try using:
Code:
jar xvf sample.zip

Or one other way is to install unzip at your machine.

Alternatively create a TAR file on your windows box. Cygwin etc will help.

you can use the command uncompress, I have use winzip to read file compressed with uncompress, never used viceversa, I think it could work.
just put
uncompress sample.zip
maybe you have to change the .zip to .Z before you can use it.
uncompress sample.Z
Maybe you can use pkunzip.

.zip .Z and .gz are all different, if they were all the same, you would not need different extensions.

A .gz or .Z file is merely a compressed binary stream.

A zip file is more akin to a .tar.Z in that it contains file meta data.

WinZip is able to make intelligent guesses about what a file really is.

You could create a small tar on the HPUX box, ftp it back to the windows box, use WinZip to open and add your various files, then ftp it back up again. Unpack using tar again on HPUX.

I guess installing unzip is not an option?
