I need an IBM utility that will unzip the .Z (capital z) file extension (Unix compressed). Thanks!

How about "uncompress"? I played around with this for a while, and got this bit to work. It may require some tweaking on your end:

Code:

//STEP0001 EXEC PGM=AOPBATCH,PARM='sh -L'             
//STDOUT   DD   SYSOUT=*                               
//STDERR   DD   SYSOUT=*                               
//STDIN    DD   *                                     
cp "//'superk.utili.txt.z'" /tmp/utili.txt.Z           
uncompress -fv /tmp/utili.txt.Z                                                         
cp /tmp/utili.txt "//'superk.utili.txt'"
/*
//*


which gave me a dataset, 'SUPERK.UTILI.TXT', in ASCII format. I then converted the dataset from ASCII to EBCDIC:

Code:

//STEP0001 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01                                     
//SYSTERM  DD   DUMMY                                           
//SYSTSPRT DD   SYSOUT=*                                         
//INPUT    DD   DSN=SUPERK.UTILI.TXT,                           
//         DISP=(SHR,DELETE,KEEP)                               
//OUTPUT   DD   DSN=SUPERK.UTILI.EBC,                           
//         DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),RECFM=VB,LRECL=1028,             
//         UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(10,10))                       
//SYSTSIN  DD   DATA                                             
OCOPY INDD(INPUT) OUTDD(OUTPUT) TEXT CONVERT((BPXFX311)) TO1047 
/*                                                               
//

If that won't work for you, maybe you can contact the folks at PKWARE to ask if PKZIP/MVS will support the .Z format (I know it supports .zip and .gz files).
