Help with unpacking and concatenating multiple zip files


Linux friends,

Any help unpacking and putting together files as below would be deeply appreciated:

reception_vol_1.z01
reception_vol_1.z02
reception_vol_1.z03
reception_vol_1.z04
reception_vol_1.z05
reception_vol_1.z06
reception_vol_1.z07
reception_vol_1.zip

This is supposed to be a video, but I have no idea how to unpack these things and put them all together. I've tried extracting the .zip file but I get a null error with Nautilus. 1 thru 7 are 50 MB and the .zip file is 39.7 MB.

Thank you,

Ubuntu 8.10

See this about half way down. Some Mac user sent you those?

jefro,

Thanks, you're probably correct in that it came from a MAC user. I'm at the end of the family line, so it's 3rd hand by now. Since I'm using Ubuntu Linux I don't know of an equivalent program for machacha.

ozanbaba,

Thank you for your reply also, but I received an immediate error stating there is no s option for zip.

It works !
that was a smart solution

unzip says it can't extract multi part zips, and adds use zip -s 0 zip.zip -out zip2.zip to join them, after than just any unzipping would work
