    Hi there!

    Does anybody know if it is possible to send commands or options to Archive Utility.app via Terminal?

    It is possible to invoke Archive Utility.app and pass it the path to a zip file, and it will uncompress it. However, I would like to also pass it a destination path, and see what other options it may have.

    Thanks in advance!
    :)

    From terminal you can use the zip command. Type in,
    Code:
    man zip
    to get help figuring out how to use the command.
