That is my whole code... and it works perfectly except for the error msg I get when I decompress a .zip-file... but it does it anyways...

Does anyone understand why I get this msg?

I ran the code for a gzipped file. I didn't get an error. What happens if you manually decompress a file with gunzip?

I altered the program slightly to handle file names with spaces in them:

#!/bin/sh
echo "Welcome... Im designed to handle your files"
fil="${1}"
case ${fil##*.} in

gz)
echo "this file is a gzip-file, decompressing it"
`gunzip "${fil}"`
;;
bz2)
echo "this file is a bzip2-file, decompressing it"
`bunzip2 "${fil}"`
;;
z)
echo "this file is a zip-file, decompressing it"
`gunzip`
;;
*)
#else compress the file
echo "Plz choose a way to compress "${fil}". (bzip2, gzip or zip)"
read choise
case $choise in
bzip2)
bzip2 "${fil}"
;;
gzip)
gzip "${fil}"
;;
zip)
zip "${fil}"
;;
esac
esac
