Panther Unzip is a little utility I wrote to decompress Panther style zip archives under other versions of Mac OS X and keep the resource forks and creator/type codes in tact.

I haven't found a machine running Mac OS X v10.1 to try out this program. There's no reason it shouldn't work and I've confirmed that 10.2 works. It works under 10.3 but that would just be silly.
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.2 or later

This is probably a great utility, but what can those of us who are running MacOS 7 on 68k Macs use to unzip Panther and other OSX zip files while retaining/restoring the resource fork?

This is a wonderful tool for those of us who use (and need) Stuffit products on our machines. I'm in graphics and am often sent InDesign and Quark 6 files with fonts collected and then zipped using Apple's built-in archiver in OSX. The problem is that once you've installed the Stuffit Deluxe package on your machine, it makes it impossible (apparently) to use Apple's finder de-archiver to open up Zip files and you lose the resource forks in Mac Classic (TrueType and Type 1) fonts, making them utterly useless! Now when I know a zip file is archived on a Mac OSX system, I use this utility and - voila! - all the file types and fonts are preserved again... Thanks so much!!!
