It seems there is still a problem... which initially i didn't notice...

1. Before running any script:
Quote:
~/home/somestuff$ls
A B C D
E F G H
and so on
~/home/somestuff/A$ls
aa1.zip aa2.zip
~/home/somestuff/B$ls
bbb.zip
~/home/somestuff/G$ls
gg1.zip gg2.zip gg3.zip gg4.zip
and so on
2. What I get after running the script of my first post from somestuff:

Quote:
~/home/somestuff$ls
A B C D
E F G H
...
aa1 aa2 bbb gg1
gg2 gg3 gg4
and so on
~/home/somestuff/A$ls
aa1.zip aa2.zip
~/home/somestuff/B$ls
bbb.zip
~/home/somestuff/G$ls
gg1.zip gg2.zip gg3.zip gg4.zip
and so on
3. What I get after running the 2nd script provided by sag47 from somestuff:

Quote:
~/home/somestuff$ls
A B C D
E F G H
and so on
~/home/somestuff/A$ls
aa1.zip aa2.zip aa1/ (a folder with aa1 file inside) aa2/ (a folder with aa2 file inside)
~/home/somestuff/B$ls
bbb.zip bbb/ (a folder with bbb file inside)
~/home/somestuff/G$ls
gg1.zip gg2.zip gg3.zip gg4.zip
gg1/ (a folder with gg1 file inside) gg2/ (a folder with gg2 file inside) gg3/ (a folder with gg3 file inside) gg4/ (a folder with gg4 file inside)
and so on
4. BUT WHAT I NEED IS TO RUN A SCRIPT FROM somestuff and get:

Quote:
~/home/somestuff$ls
A B C D
E F G H
and so on
~/home/somestuff/A$ls
aa1.zip aa2.zip aa1 aa2
~/home/somestuff/B$ls
bbb.zip bbb
~/home/somestuff/G$ls
gg1.zip gg2.zip gg3.zip gg4.zip
gg1 gg2 gg3 gg4
and so on
THE REASON I WANT THIS, IS BECAUSE MANY OF THE RESULTING FILES ARE SPLITTED RAR FILES WHICH MUST BE IN THE SAME FOLDER IN ORDER TO BE FURTHER EXTRACTED....
e.g. gg1.r0 gg1.r1. gg1.r3 gg1.rar


so after all i guess makedir should be removed from the script of sag47 but dont know how to do it exactly...
thanks again for your time all

Here's the new script with comments.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#assumes you're running the script as ./script.sh and the script is located
#where you need to process the files.
rootdir="$PWD"

#see man find; for more information
find "$rootdir" -type f -name '*.zip' | while read file;do

  #change the current working directory to the directory of the zip file
  cd "$(dirname "$file")"

  #before processing, ensure the current working directory is in fact the same directory where the zip file is located
  #this is relative to the zip file and has nothing to do with $rootdir
  #the point is you want to be sure the directory change worked before you go unzipping a file
  #otherwise it's possible to accidentally unzip all zip files within the same folder if it can't ever change the directory
  #alternatively you could also use the following commented out if statement instead which checks the exit status of the last command (which would be the cd command)
  #if [ "$?" = "0" ];then
  if [ "$(dirname "$file")" = "$PWD" ];then

    #added the -p switch to mkdir so that if the directory exists there is no error
    #if the directory does not exist then create it; else update the directory timestamp
    mkdir -p "$(basename "$file" | cut -d. -f1)"

    #make $PWD the directory of the same name of the zip file
    cd "$(basename "$file" | cut -d. -f1)"

    #$file is a full path name and not a relative path.
    #unzipped $file will output to the current working directory
    unzip "$file"

  else

    #since there was an error "break" out of the while loop and stop processing zip files.
    echo "error"
    break
  fi
done

#I added this at the end in case you want to do post processing after the while loop
#if this isn't here then the script would be working in the last used working directory (which is the last zip file unzipped)
#this may or may not be what you expect so instead of guessing I added this in to force changing the directory back to $rootdir
cd "$rootdir"
Basically I took advantage of unzip outputting to the current working directory. That's why this script works. There are other more short hand ways of doing this but I decided to approach it in a way that was conceptually easy to understand.

If you want to learn more about a script use the man pages. man every command you see and that is how you will learn. I suggest starting with man bash.

Alternatively you could also avoid errors with making the directory like so...
Code:
    if [ ! -d "$(basename "$file" | cut -d. -f1)" ];then
      mkdir "$(basename "$file" | cut -d. -f1)"
    fi
    cd "$(basename "$file" | cut -d. -f1)"
    unzip "$file"
