Portable ZIP Viewer  
SourceForge logo


PYunzip is a small script which displays the contents of a ZIP archive and allows opening/viewing each file by double-clicking it. It requires Python with Tkinter (most platforms support this out of the box) and Info-Zip's "unzip" utility (the open-source standard for ZIP archives).

In contrast to other utilities with the same purpose such as WinZip, Gnome File Roller, etc. PYunzip focuses on ZIP archives and portability. I tested it on Linux and Windows/Cygwin but it should also run on native Windows platforms as well as most Unix variants which support Python and Info-ZIP, probably all of them.

The latest version of PYunzip can be found on the PYunzip page on SourceForge.
