       funzip [-password] [input[.zip|.gz]]


              Optional password to be  used  if  ZIP  archive  is
              encrypted.  Decryption may not be supported at some
              sites.  See DESCRIPTION for more details.

              Optional  input  archive  file  specification.  See
              DESCRIPTION for details.


       funzip  without a file argument acts as a filter; that is,
       it assumes that a ZIP archive (or  a  gzip'd(1)  file)  is
       being piped into standard input, and it extracts the first
       member from the archive to stdout.  When stdin comes  from
       a  tty device, funzip assumes that this cannot be a stream
       of (binary) compressed data and shows a short  help  text,
       instead.   If there is a file argument, then input is read
       from the specified file instead of from stdin.

       A password for encrypted zip files can be specified on the
       command  line (preceding the file name, if any) by prefix­
       ing the password with a dash.  Note that this  constitutes
       a  security  risk  on many systems; currently running pro­
       cesses are often visible via simple commands (e.g.,  ps(1)
       under  Unix),  and command-line histories can be read.  If
       the first entry of the zip file is encrypted and no  pass­
       word  is  specified  on the command line, then the user is
       prompted for a password and the password is not echoed  on
       the console.

       Given  the  limitation on single-member extraction, funzip
       is most useful in conjunction with  a  secondary  archiver
       program such as tar(1).  The following section includes an
       example illustrating this usage in the case of disk  back­
       ups to tape.


       To  use  funzip  to  extract  the first member file of the
       archive test.zip and to pipe it into more(1):

           funzip test.zip | more

       To use funzip to test the first member  file  of  test.zip
       (any errors will be reported on standard error):

           funzip test.zip > /dev/null

       and  more  then  ``restores''  the  terminal  to this mode
       before exiting.  To recover, run funzip on the  same  file
       but  redirect  to  /dev/null rather than piping into more;
       after prompting again for the password, funzip will  reset
       the terminal properly.

       There  is  presently  no way to extract any member but the
       first from a ZIP archive.  This would  be  useful  in  the
       case  where  a  ZIP  archive  is  included  within another
       archive.  In the case where the first member is  a  direc­
       tory, funzip simply creates the directory and exits.

       The  functionality  of  funzip should be incorporated into
       unzip itself (future release).
