    Extracting splitted Z files

    Hi!

    I have a bunch of split Z files and I want to extract them but I cannot find how. To be more specific I have a file named foo which is compressed into files foo.0Z, foo.1Z foo.2Z. I have tried uncompress but does not work I have tried gunzip,gzip etc but no result either. Even 7zip will not do the work. Any help would be much appreciated!!

    You should be able to concatenate them and uncompress them with something like:
    Code:
    cat foo.0Z foo.1Z foo.2Z | gzip -dc > foo

    Are you able to right click and select "Extract Here" on the first one?

    I have tried that too but it does not work either. I finally did it with 7zip through windows. It is strange that the 7zip does not have the same functionality in Windows and Linux. And I do not mean the GUI but the actual decompressing abilities.

    Anyway, thanks for your time! I really appreciate it.
