Extract Zip Archive

This script defines the verb unzip. unzip extracts a specified Zip archive in a specified sub-directory using the Zip tools installed as part of the J 6.02 installation (jpath ~tools/zip).

The code here was originally extracted from the source for the J 6.01 JAL Package Manager (pacman.ijs), but has been simplified for J 6.02. I have tried to retain the cross-platform and cross-external-unzip-program support, but have only tested the script on Windows Vista.


   load jpath '~temp/extractzip.ijs'
   load 'dir'

      (0 0$0)-: 2 1 dir 'c:\test folder\' NB. Show that folder doesn't already exist

   unzip (jpath '~addons/arc/zip/'); 'c:\test folder\'
Archive:  C:/Program Files/j602/addons/arc/zip/
  inflating: c:/test folder/test1.ijs
  inflating: c:/test folder/test2.txt
  inflating: c:/test folder/zlib.bmp
   creating: c:/test folder/other/
  inflating: c:/test folder/other/test3.txt

      2 1 dir 'c:\test folder\'

The non-Unix part of the shellcmd verb was changed to use spawn rather than shell, because it calls the external unzip program directly rather than using a batch file as was the case in J 6.01. Download script: extractzip.ijs

Note that the unzip program cannot extract a zip archive to a sub-directory of a previously non-existing directory. That is you must ensure that the path to directory you wish extract into, already exists. You may find the pathcreate verb from the Addons/general/dirutils Addon useful in that situation.
