Create split zip files from the command line
Authored by: blubdog on Mar 20, '13 08:35:25PM

The -s parameter splits the archive into multiple zipped files fine, but how do I unzip them? Using unzip from the command only looks at the very last file in the archive, and when you specify the first file (.z01), it errors out with:

$ unzip bws.z01
Archive: bws.z01
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of bws.z01 or, and cannot find bws.z01.ZIP, period.

unzipping a split zip...

The Unarchiver (free in MAS), unzips the split zip just fine, but hell if I can't find a way to get unzip at the command line to do the same thing.
