Just starting out and have a question? If it is not in the man pages or the how-to's this is the place!

p7zip man page?

I just installed p7zip via "yum install p7zip" on a CentOS 4 box, but there doesn't seem to be a man page. I need to use it to unzip a huge archive that unzip can't handle. Does anyone know where I can find a man page on p7zip? I looked around online, but haven't found anything yet. Thanks so much, Mike

Apparently the command is 7za not p7zip, even though the install is yum install p7zip. 7za with no options gives a quick run down of available switches and stuff... thanks Mike.
