This has come up before:


I'm going to assume that you path isn't sent correctly. To test this,
try using system to make a specific call to unzip for your odt file

   system("unzip -o testfile.odt")

and see if it works. You can also test by opening a dos prompt and
trying the same command for a directory away from where zip and unzip


ps I'm trying to move my newsgroup traffic to gmail, but it is not
delivering a lot of messages (like this one). Make sure that your
response includes my Pfizer email address.
