I know this question has already been asked but I need to know how to unzip a file on the iSeries?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s not possible to unzip files natively on the iSeries, however there is a version of PKZIP for the iSeries that will allow you unzip files on the iSeries.

==================================================

The simplest answer is usually to review the Java jar tool. Note the link on that page to Sun’s documentation. Also note the reference to the Java ajar tool.

There may be particular requirements such as transferring files in binary mode, passwords on the .zip file, etc., that the creator of the file will have to help with.

PKZip/Unzip is available as a commercial and supported product. Web site is noted above.

    three QCMDSRC (and their corresponding QCLSRC) members:
    1. CRTZIPF (to make a new zip file)
    2. UPDZIPF (to add file(s) to an existing zip file)
    3. OPNZIPF (to extract file(s) from the zip file)
    also three corresponding HTML pages with directions/examples for the commands

    July 13, 2010 - List Contents of Zip Files on i - Whether you create a .zip file on the PC, Mac, or right on an i system, you can view the contents of the .zip on the green screen of the i itself. In this week's Tuesday Tip, Bob Cozzi reviews how to create a .zip file on i and then illustrates the command available to list a directory of the files stored in a .zip, regardless of where it was created.
