Have you defined UNZIP as a symbol? You have to do this to pass the
program arguments, in this case the file name.
First define the symbol (be SURE to include the '$' before the '['):
$ UNZIP :== $ [directory with UNZIP.EXE]UNZIP.EXE
(After defining UNZIP, run it without any arguments to get a brief help
screen. -x is the switch to extract files, -l lists them.)
Then use it:
$ UNZIP [switches such as -l or -x] <file name, eg gopher209.zip>
Good luck, Bill
