    Hi all,

    I want to extract a zip file at particular path using Objective C on Mac OS.
    After googling I came to know that ZipArchive is the library someone has provided. But I could not compile it in Mac , I am facing errors while compiling it. Can any one please let me know some solution for Unzipping a zip file.

    I will be very thankful.

    zlib is part of Mac OS X, I see /usr/lib/libz.dylib and /usr/include/zlib.h. It's pretty much the de facto zip/unzip implementation.

    I'm not sure how well-documented it is, you're probably better off forking a process and getting "unzip" to do it for you.
