unzip - list, test and extract compressed files in a ZIP

unzip [-Z] [-cflptuvz[ajnoqsUV$]] file[.zip] [file(s) ...]
[-x xfile(s) ...] [-d exdir]

unzip will list, test, or extract files from a ZIP archive,
commonly found on MS-DOS systems. The default behavior
(with no options) is to extract into the current directory
(and subdirectories below it) all files from the specified
ZIP archive. A companion program, zip(1L), creates ZIP
archives; both programs are compatible with PKWARE's PKZIP

Path of the ZIP archive(s). If the file specification
is a wildcard, each matching file is processed in an
order determined by the operating system (or file sys-
tem). Only the filename can be a wildcard; the path
itself cannot. Wildcard expressions are similar to
Unix egrep(1) (regular) expressions and may contain:

* matches a sequence of 0 or more characters

? matches exactly 1 character

matches any single character found inside the
brackets; ranges are specified by a beginning
character, a hyphen, and an ending character. If
an exclamation point or a caret (`!' or `^') fol-
lows the left bracket, then the range of charac-
ters within the brackets is complemented (that is,
anything except the characters inside the brackets
is considered a match).

(Be sure to quote any character which might otherwise
be interpreted or modified by the operating system,
particularly under Unix and VMS.) If no matches are
found, the specification is assumed to be a literal
filename; and if that also fails, the suffix .zip is
appended. Note that self-extracting ZIP files are sup-
ported; just specify the .exe suffix (if any) expli-

An optional list of archive members to be processed.
Regular expressions (wildcards) may be used to match
multiple members; see above. Again, be sure to quote
expressions that would otherwise be expanded or modi-
fied by the operating system.

[-x xfile(s)]
An optional list of archive members to be excluded from
processing. Since wildcard characters match directory
separators (`/'), this option may be used to exclude
any files which are in subdirectories. For example,
``unzip foo *.[ch] -x */*'' would extract all C source
files in the main directory, but none in any subdirec-
tories. Without the -x option, all C source files in
all directories within the

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
