UNZIP FOR LINUX--repairs bugs in earlier versions.

this archive contains the LINUX binary "UNZIP.Z". Transfer it to your
LINUX partition. Rename it to "unzip.Z" and then uncompress it:

mv UNZIP.Z unzip.Z
uncompress unzip.Z

This will leave you with the binary "unzip". Set permissions correctly
so that any user may access it. Then move this to the /bin directory.

chmod a+x unzip
mv unzip /bin

You will also want /bin to have its permissions set for others to
read and execute programs contained therein.

By the way, if you have an earlier version of unzip for LINUX which
is broken, you may be able to use it by using the "U" switch.
In this way, you could move this archive to LINUX and unzip it directly.
(remember you ONLY need this for the BROKEN version of UNZIP):

unzip -xU yourfile

This will leave you with the "yourfile.zip" unzipped, however, all the
contents will have UPPERCASE names and you will have to rename them to
lowercase names in keeping with UNIX tradition.

If you have problems moving files between DOS and LINUX partitions, look
for the MTOOLS package for LINUX. This is available at the following
BBSs:

MAC'S PLACE BBS (919) 891-1111
BRODMANN'S PLACE BBS (301) 843-5732

Look for "MTOOLSN.ZIP" or "MTOOLSN.TAZ"
