Question Netscape question

I need to load Netscape on my UNIX workstation. It is an old Pyramid workstation.

I have an Netscape exe zipped file on my NT laptop but I don't have gzip on my workstation to unzip it with. I can ftp the file to the workstation, but I have no way to open it.

My question is what utility is there that can unzip a file with *.zip extension on UNIX? Remeber, I don't have gzip/gunzip.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Kelam,
Are you sure that your Netscape version is for UNIX? Usually, they pack the binaries in tar.gz format. Anyhow, there is a zip utility called 'zip' available in Linux (I've seen it only in Linux so far!). It is compatible with M$-DOS PKZIP, and the commands are same too. HTH,

My real problem is that I don't have a utility that will work on UNIX. Also, it's not LINUX so I don't think that zip utility will work.

I may have it on an install disk that I can load.

Thanks for your help!

Suggest you get/install unzip. Here is what we use.... surely an outdated older version:

server# unzip
UnZip 5.41 of 16 April 2000, by Info-ZIP. Maintained by C. Spieler. Send
bug reports to the authors at Zip-Bugs@lists.wku.edu; see README for details.

Usage: unzip [-Z] [-opts[modifiers]] file[.zip][list] [-x xlist] [-d exdir]
Default action is to extract files in list, except those in xlist, to exdir;
file[.zip] may be a wildcard. -Z => ZipInfo mode ("unzip -Z" for usage).

-p extract files to pipe, no messages -l list files (short format)
-f freshen existing files, create none -t test compressed archive data
-u update files, create if necessary -z display archive comment
-x exclude files that follow (in xlist) -d extract files into exdir

modifiers: -q quiet mode (-qq => quieter)
-n never overwrite existing files -a auto-convert any text files
-o overwrite files WITHOUT prompting -aa treat ALL files as text
-j junk paths (do not make directories) -v be verbose/print version info
-C match filenames case-insensitively -L make (some) names lowercase
-X restore UID/GID info -V retain VMS version numbers
-M pipe through "more" pager


Examples (see unzip.doc for more info):
unzip data1 -x joe => extract all files except joe from zipfile data1.zip
unzip -p foo | more => send contents of foo.zip via pipe into program more
unzip -fo foo ReadMe => quietly replace existing ReadMe if archive file newer
