Hi friends,

I have a .zip file which has 6 pdf files. I have ftp'd the .zip file into unix and I am trying to uncompress/unzip the file. Could you please help with the right command.

Thanks

I hadn't thought of that Smilie

New solution:

Burn the 6 PDF's to a BluRay disc, then put it in you PS3; set up a wireless connection to your Linux box and Bluetooth it via infrared to your USB stick...

It sometimes pays to think "out of the box".

MAybe we can fit you back into the box.... Smilie

the OP has asked variations on this question several times already.

1. use the zip/unzip commands in unix, not gzip/gunzip, for multifile archives
zip was a good start.

2. alternatively, use tar to collect the files FIRST, then compress/uncompress (gzip/gunzip) the archive. I already explained this to you before.

3. gunzip won't work well as it has trouble separating several compressed files from one archive file.

4. unzip is specifically meant to do what you want.

Go back and gather the files into an archive that you can get multiple files out of. ftp that over. Then uncompress the archive, extracting multiple files.

To find unzip, try
Code:
which unzip

If that does not work and you are on Linux try
Code:
locate unzip
