HowTo Unzip Folder on Server

I want to know if it is possible to unzip a folder uploaded to my server.  I have a virtual dedicated server on Godaddy  using plesk on linux  . Trying to figure this out tonight. Thanks guys...

3 Solutions
Have you emailed Godaddy to see what they support?   You might check out http://us3.php.net/manual/en/ref.zip.php if they have that installed

Programmatically there are lot of options. Which technology your server is supporting.

Java/Servlets has java.util.zip
.NET can still use java.util.zip by referencing Microsoft Visual J# dll (vjslib.dll) or ICSharpCode SharpZipLib

PHP > (as coreybryant suggested)

Do you have access to a shell account?  

Generally, you could use:

gunzip filename

from the command line.

Thats the problem... I dont have shell access. I just ran an info.php and found out I have the ZLib supported.  So I guess not as much an issue as I thought. Thanks guys for bearing with me. I'm new to all the hosting and programming side,  I use to just do the frontend design now I'm trying to expand my knowledge.
