UNZIP(1)                NetBSD General Commands Manual                UNZIP(1)

NAME
     unzip -- extract files from a ZIP archive

SYNOPSIS
     unzip [-aCcfjLlnopqtuvy] [-d dir] [-x pattern] zipfile

DESCRIPTION
     The following options are available:

     -a          When extracting a text file, convert DOS-style line endings
                 to Unix-style line endings.

     -C          Match file names case-insensitively.

     -c          Extract to stdout/screen.  When extracting files from the
                 zipfile, they are written to stdout.  This is similar to -p,
                 but doesn't suppress normal output.

     -d dir      Extract files into the specified directory rather than the
                 current directory.

     -f          Update existing.  Extract only files from the zipfile if a
                 file with the same name already exists on disk and is older
                 than the former.  Otherwise, the file is silently skipped.

     -j          Ignore directories stored in the zipfile; instead, extract
                 all files directly into the extraction directory.

     -L          Convert the names of the extracted files and directories to
                 lowercase.

     -l          List, rather than extract, the contents of the zipfile.

     -n          No overwrite.  When extracting a file from the zipfile, if a
                 file with the same name already exists on disk, the file is
                 silently skipped.

     -o          Overwrite.  When extracting a file from the zipfile, if a
                 file with the same name already exists on disk, the existing
                 file is replaced with the file from the zipfile.

     -p          Extract to stdout.  When extracting files from the zipfile,
                 they are written to stdout.  The normal output is suppressed
                 as if -q was specified.

     -q          Quiet: print less information while extracting.

     -t          Test: do not extract anything, but verify the checksum of
                 every file in the archive.

     -u          Update.  When extracting a file from the zipfile, if a file
                 with the same name already exists on disk, the existing file
                 is replaced with the file from the zipfile if and only if the
                 latter is newer than the former.  Otherwise, the file is
                 silently skipped.

     -v          List verbosely, rather than extract, the contents of the zip-
                 file.  This differs from -l by using the long listing.  Note
                 that most of the data is currently fake and does not reflect
                 the content of the archive.

     -x pattern  Exclude files matching the pattern pattern.

     -y          Print four digit years in listings instead of two.

     Note that only one of -n, -o, and -u may be specified.

ENVIRONMENT
     If the UNZIP_DEBUG environment variable is defined, the -q command-line
     option has no effect, and additional debugging information will be
     printed to stderr.

COMPATIBILITY
     The unzip utility aims to be sufficiently compatible with other implemen-
     tations to serve as a drop-in replacement in the context of the pkgsrc(7)
     system.  No attempt has been made to replicate functionality which is not
     required for that purpose.

     For compatibility reasons, command-line options will be recognized if
     they are listed not only before but also after the name of the zipfile.

     Normally, the -a option should only affect files which are marked as text
     files in the zipfile's central directory.  Since the archive(3) library
     reads zipfiles sequentially, and does not use the central directory, that
     information is not available to the unzip utility.  Instead, the unzip
     utility will assume that a file is a text file if no non-ASCII characters
     are present within the first block of data decompressed for that file.
     If non-ASCII characters appear in subsequent blocks of data, a warning
     will be issued.

     The unzip utility is only able to process ZIP archives handled by
     libarchive(3).  Depending on the installed version of libarchive(3), this
     may or may not include self-extracting archives.

HISTORY
     The unzip utility appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

AUTHORS
     The unzip utility and this manual page were written by Dag-Erling
     Smørgrav <des@FreeBSD.org>.  It uses the archive(3) library developed by
     Tim Kientzle <kientzle@FreeBSD.org>.

BUGS
     The unzip utility currently does not support asking the user whether to
     overwrite or skip a file that already exists on disk.  To be on the safe
     side, it will fail if it encounters a file that already exists and nei-
     ther the -n nor the -o command line option was specified.

NetBSD 6.0                      August 18, 2011                     NetBSD 6.0
