What version of Solaris? On Solaris 2.7 and later (maybe on 2.6) unzip is furnished with the OS. For eralier versions you'll need to download and install unzip.

To unzip a file just use 'unzip somefile.zip' in a terminal window. For more information see 'man unzip'.

No, unzip wasn't part of the standard Solaris install until at LEAST v2.7. Might have been v2.8. I'm almost positive it was in v2.6 because I got bitten by that.

lcor, Solaris has many versions. You need to be specific.
