Exclamation Unlocatable unzipped file


Hi,
I've entered this into the terminal:

unzip -v filename.zip

and unzip extracts the file but it does not say where it is extracting it to. I looked into the current directory and it did not unzip there. When I try to specify a directory unzip doesn't do anything. Can anyone tell me where it has been unzipped to?

Thanx.

Try 'which foo' maybe, or 'updatedb' and 'locate foo' - or, if it's large and you know about what 'du' should produce, do 'du' and look for what's expanded.

Or, just fire up a file manager and do a lot of wandering around in directories. If it's a binary some of it should have ended up in bin, of course - which bin might be a question, depending on the type of app.

And it's possible it just disappeared. *g* Stuff should untar - and unzip, I guess - in a new subdirectory in the same directory as the compressed file. Or, rather, it should unzip to the directory you're running the command from which, based on your quote, was the same as the zip.

Um, and of course, if this was on a mounted floppy none of the above except maybe du will work because it'll be on the floppy. And if it was from a mounted cdrom it should have given an error but might have exited silently - it would have unzipped to RAM but not written anything.

If you know a name of any file from the zip file, you can use
find / -name filename
It can take some time, but the file will be found.

God, I must look so stupid! Thanks aizkorri, I just typed in that unzip with no options and it worked(This took me hours to do)! In my weaker moments I want to go back to Windoze!
