[Python] How do I unzip .egg files?


I need to unzip a .egg file used by python. File says it is a zip file, but I've tried a lot of different archive utilities and none have worked. I'm new to *nix though so it's probably me. Anyone know the command I type to unzip *.egg files?

Did you look inside of that file? Maybe you have this: http://lyrian.obnix.com/egg/ ?

The "file" utility says it's a compressed zip file. I don't know how to look inside a compressed file or extract .zips. I've extracted .tar.gz .tar and .bz2 files but never a .zip.

zip or gzip without arguments will print help, or see man zip, man gzip.
