unzip command with password in a script?

I have to unzip a file that has been password protected using unzip (version 5.5 on Red Hat 2.41.21).

When I run the command from the command line, it prompt me to enter the password.

Unfortunately, this process needs to be automated, so I am trying to figure out how to pass the password to the command. I can find to 'password' or 'encrypt' option.

Any ideas?

Ignore this post - I should have read the man page first.

Sorry about that.
