ZipGun version 3.3 dated 14 May 1990
ZipGun is a "shell" program for PKZIP and PKUNZIP which were written
by Phil Katz.
ZipGun uses the "point and shoot" method of pull down menus in an
effort to make it easier to manipulate .ZIP files without having to
remember the various option switches. The easiest way to use
ZIPGUN is to go directly to the Directory option on the command bar
by depressing the Alt-D keys. Use the Change option to change to the
directory you're interested in. Use the Display option to see a sorted
list of files. At this point, you can use the F1 help key to see a
window of the available options while operating in this mode.
ZipGun assumes that the following program files are located in the
current directory or in a directory supported by the DOS Path:
PKZIP, PKUNZIP and LIST
I strongly urge you to use Vernon D. Buerg's LIST.COM with ZipGun, but
if you have another favorite program for viewing/editing files, be sure
to make a copy of it and rename it to LIST.
This program is considered FreeWare for those of you who use this
program once in a while. If you use ZipGun more often, the program
is then considered FreeWare Plus.

I've tried to keep ZipGun extremely easy to use and understand.
