UnZip...With Mac OS X Apple delivers the older UnZip Version 5.52. This version comes with a bunch of sad issues that got solved with unzip 6.0. E.g. with the new Version you can work with files larger than 2GB.

With this Package you get:
  • UnZip 6.00
  • UnZipSFX 6.00
  • fUnZip (filter UnZip) 3.95
What's New
Version 6.0:
  • Support PKWARE ZIP64 extensions, allowing Zip archives and Zip archive entries larger than 4 GiBytes and more than 65536 entries within a single Zip archive. This support is currently only available for Unix, OpenVMS and Win32/Win64.
  • Support for bzip2 compression method.
  • Support for UTF-8 encoded entry names, both through PKWARE's "General Purpose Flags Bit 11" indicator and Info-ZIP's new "up" unicode path extra field. (Currently, on Windows the UTF-8 handling is limited to the character subset contained in the configured non-unicode "system code page".)
  • Added "wrong implementation used" warning to error messages of the MSDOS port when used under Win32, in an attempt to reduce false bug reports.
  • Fixed "Time of Creation/Time of Use" vulnerability when setting attributes of extracted files, for Unix and Unix-like ports.
  • Fixed memory leak when processing invalid deflated data.
  • Fixed long-standing bug in unshrink (partial_clear), added boundary checks against invalid compressed data.
  • On Unix, keep inherited SGID attribute bit for extracted directories unless restoration of owner/group id or SUID/SGID/Tacky attributes was requested.
  • On Unix, allow extracted filenames to contain embedded control characters when explicitly requested by specifying the new command line option "-^".
  • On Unix, support restoration of symbolic link attributes.
  • On Unix, support restoration of 32-bit UID/GID data using the new "ux" IZUNIX3 extra field introduced with Zip 3.0.
  • Support for ODS5 extended filename syntax on new OpenVMS systems.
  • Support symbolic links zipped up on VMS.
  • On VMS (only 8.x or better), support symbolic link creation.
  • On VMS, support option to create converted text files in Stream_LF format.
  • New -D option to suppress restoration of timestamps for extracted directory entries (on those ports that support setting of directory timestamps). By specifying "-DD", this new option also allows to suppress timestamp restoration for ALL extracted files on all UnZip ports which support restoration of timestamps. On VMS, the default behaviour is now to skip restoration of directory timestamps; here, "--D" restores ALL timestamps, "-D" restores none.
  • On OS/2, Win32, and Unix, the (previously optional) feature UNIXBACKUP to allow saving backup copies of overwritten files on extraction is now enabled by default.
Version 6.0:
  • Support PKWARE ZIP64 extensions, allowing Zip archives and Zip archive entries larger than 4 GiBytes and more than 65536 entries within a single Zip archive. This support is currently only available for Unix, OpenVMS and Win32/Win64.
  • Support for bzip2 compression method.

Thanks for packaging a newer version of this utility. But I discovered that MacPorts also installs version 6. I ran "sudo port install unzip" and version 6 became active after restarting the terminal.

MacPorts installs it to /opt/local/bin, so there's no collision with the default copy of unzip in /usr/bin. The order of directories in the PATH takes care of finding the newer one.

Is there a reason I should prefer this package to using MacPorts?

I dont use the MacPorts, its more a question of how one gonne use his system than what is better or not. So if you use macports and it works well for you its cool :)

Is it also in 64 Bit then?

Thx,
Bernd

This program REPLACES the following three programs:

unzip
funzip
unzipsfx

These programs are typically located in the /usr/bin directory.

I would suggest that you BACKUP or RENAME these three programs BEFORE installing UNZIP 6.0 in case you ever want to uninstall UNZIP 6.0 and go back to the older version of UNZIP.

Or better yet use something like Macports or fink to compile and install UNZIP.

An explanation of what gets installed where and WHY would be helpful.
Also how to uninstall.

Can UnZip 6.0 open password protected files? Otherwise The Unarchiver would still be the better alternative.

Therefor you can use the funzip in my archive:


funzip [-password] infile.zip > outfile
