Info-Zip Unzip

3.0 & 6.0
Release date: 
Friday, 28 September, 2018



Authors/Port authors:

InfoZip UNZIP (for decompressing/extracting ZIP files; needed for most archiver program shells), recompiled with support for "shrink" (LZW) re-enabled. Will successfully process archives with shrink-compressed files (e.g. IBM Feature Installer) where the 'standard' UNZIP binary will not.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.
