How to unpack

Post by dalpets » Thu Aug 05, 2010 12:37

I have tried to unpack a file without success.
I have tried unzip but that apparently just lets me look inside the file. I need to unpack the file.
Could I have some help on this please?

PS: What decompression software should I have installed to make the required command work. I'm not sure that it is contained in the base package I have installed.
