Hi All,

As past of client IPACS cost reduction we planned to get the ZIP file from UNIX system and UNZIP in Mainframes.
We have PKZIP in our system os/390, Unix to have the same.
As file being huge they proposed to use GZIP to unzip to dataset. But while doing this process the file is not getting converted .

Can any one have the JCL to unzip the file zipped in unix by using gzip.

Thanks,
Girish

What Version of the PKZIP software are you running?

First, decide upon PKZIP or gzip/gunzip -- they are not necessarily compatible (gunzip specifically will not unzip a PKZIP file, for example). gunzip and gzip typically work under Unix System Services (USS) on USS files. Have you thought about using pax?

Does gunzip on Unix create a zip file? I've seen that it can do so on Windows but I don't see any such statement on the gzip web site for Unix. Assuming that it will do so, have you transferred the file (in binary) to the mainframe? Have you attempted to run PKZIP against the file?

If you're asking for specific JCL to run PKZIP against your file, shouldn't you contact your site support group or the PKZIP vendor for assistance and/or the manual? The precise JCL will be site-dependent and may vary depending on how and where PKZIP was installed.

Contact thesite support group or the PKZIP vendor.

It's an PKWARE product, but we don't have any contact information with us. I ran the Job against that dataset but of no use nothing happened.
If you have JCL for this one please pass it .
i am utter need of that.
Thanks,
Girish

The previous versions of PKZIP have supported GZIP, so I have to believe that the newest versions do also.

I just downloaded a copy of the PKZIP for z/OS Version 9 User's Guide, and Chapter 12 is actually titled Processing with GZIP.

According to the manual, you need to specify:

-ARCHIVE_ZIPFORMAT(GZIP)

and has a few notes:

The GZIP standard does not support PKWARE archive attributes; therefore, some
SecureZIP features are not available for use when the GZIP format is enabled. Some
features which are excluded from use are: strong encryption, digital signatures,
multiple files per GZIP stream, self-extracting archives.
• When enabled with GZIP, password-based 96-bit encryption is supported for decryption
under PKZIP for MVS, PKZIP for zSeries, PKZIP for OS/400, PKZIP for i5/OS,
SecureZIP for i5/OS, PKZIP for z/OS, and SecureZIP for z/OS.
• When processing input GZIP archives, see also: GZIP_SUFFIX and GZIPCRC_IGNORE
