you! Un will unwhatever that file needs, so long as either Pkunzip or Pkunpak

To install Un.Bat, put it in a directory in your path, and also see that
Pkunzip and Pkunpak are also in the path. Then, when faced with one of those
collections of files, just type the following command line.
where is the .zip or .arc file you want to extract files from, and

UN JUNK D:
Note that if you have the archive file JUNK.ARC, that you wanted to do the
same thing with, the command line would be:
