Dos executable: decomp.exe

I get files uploaded to me on a linux box, but then i have to download it to my dos pc cuz i need to use a dos executable to decompress it. (This is different from the standard linux 'decompress/compress').

Now my question is how to i set this up so i can use DOSEMU/DOSEXEC to run this dos executable thru a linux box.

Any thoughts much appreciated.

this is nothing to do with programming. please think about what forums you post questions in.

read the man page and other docs for dosemu, and try using it. but i doubt you need to use it. you can probably unzip/unrar/unlha or whatever just easily enough under linux

What are you trying to decompress/compress? Both WInzip and WinRar run on Linux if you use Wine! http://www.winehq.com/

However, I recommend that people use free software that is license compatible with *GPL or *BSD. For example, here are a few compression programs that run natively on Linux:

gzip
bzip2
zip

You can find out how they work by reading their man pages. Example:

man zip
