Unzipping without  zip_open()

Hello,

I need to extract the files from a zip file using a PHP script (version 4.3.10).

I tried to use this: zip_open()

But get an error:  
         Fatal error: Call to undefined function: zip_open()

I do NOT have shell or root access to this server so I cannot install zziplib.

Are there any other options?  Maybe a PEAR package or something?

I just went through exactly the same thing myself and settled on this library: http://www.phpconcept.net/pclzip/index.en.php

I have not tried creating zips with this (I don't happen to need to for this project), but I have opened and extracted zip files without any trouble.
