    extract password protected winzip 10.0 file

    Hi folks,

    I would like to extract a password protected winzip 10.0 file under linux. However, gunzip, unzip etc. cannot handle this and just print "unknown compression method 99". Does anybody know a linux program that can extract these files?

    unzip -P your_password
    works ?

    No, sorry, it doesn't. It says: "unsupported compression method 99".
    Seems to be a new format introduced in Winzip 10.0. Is there a linux program out there that can decompress it?
