MySQL Source code for Unix commands

hi Folks!!
Just got a question in mind....
Is it possible for us to read the c code of the commands in the bin directory? I work on a LINUX server and i only see executables in the bin directory which i obviously can't read. Please help me regarding this.
Thanks in advance and wishing you a very happy and prosperous New year 2010.

For getting the zip command source.
apt-get source zip

If you get this error,

For 'bc' command source, here you can get: Debian -- Details of source package bc in lenny
