unzip — List, Test & Extract compressed ZIP files.


unzip will list, test, or extract files from a ZIP archive. The default behavior (with no options) is to extract into the current directory (and subdirectories below it) all files from the specified ZIP archive.


$ unzip myfile.zip — Unzip the myfile.zip

$ unzip -t myfile.zip — Test correctness of the file.

$ unzip myfile *.txt — Unzip only *.txt files

$ unzip myfile *.txt *.sxi *.tex — Unzip only *.txt, *.sxi and *.tex files

$ unzip myfile -d /tmp — Unzip the files in /tmp Dir.

$ unzip -f myfile — Unzip files which are newer then current Dir files.

$ unzip -o myfile — Unzip and overwrite existing files without prompting.
