NAME

miniunzip - uncompress and examine ZIP archives  

SYNOPSIS

miniunzip [-exvlo] zipfile [ files_to_extract ] [-d tempdir]  

DESCRIPTION

minizip is a simple tool which allows the extraction of compressed file archives in the ZIP format used by the MS-DOS utility PKZIP. It was written as a demonstration of the zlib(3) library and therefore lack many of the features of the unzip(1) program.  

OPTIONS

A number of options are supported. With the exception of -d tempdir these must be supplied before any other arguments and are:
-l , --v
List the files in the archive without extracting them.
-o
Overwrite files without prompting for confirmation.
-x
Extract files (default).

The zipfile argument is the name of the archive to process. The next argument can be used to specify a single file to extract from the archive.

Lastly, the following option can be specified at the end of the command-line:

-d tempdir
Extract the archive in the directory tempdir rather than the current directory.
 

SEE ALSO

minizip(1), zlib(3), unzip(1).
