Unzip command

Is there any shell command for unzipping .zip archives?
Thank you in advance.

Please try to post in the correct forum in future.

There's unzip if you have Info-ZIP's UnZip software installed. Your distro should have a package for this. If you happen to use Slackware, the package is called infozip-<version> and has both zip and unzip in it.
