Zip 2.0 is a compression and file packaging utility. It is compatible with
PKZIP 2.04g (Phil Katz ZIP) for MSDOS systems. There is a companion to zip
called unzip (of course) which you should be able to find the same place you
This version of zip has been ported to a wide array of Unix and other
mainframes, minis, and micros including VMS, OS/2, Minix, MSDOS, Windows NT,
Atari, and Amiga. Although highly compatible with PKware's PKZIP and PKUNZIP
utilities of MSDOS fame, our primary objective has been one of portability
and other-than-MSDOS functionality. Features not found in the PKWare version
include creation of zip files in a pipe or on a device, VMS and OS/2 extended
file attributes, conversion from Unix to MSDOS text file format; and, of
course, the ability to run on most of your favorite operating systems.
And it's free.
