Linux zip utility
I'm looking for a linux zip utility that can create an auto-extracting zip, and run a file within the zip.
Anyone know of one that will fit these needs?
I don't, and more importantly, no sane Linux user would do that. Running random executables is a really bad idea.
there is zip on all linux, does what you would expect, creates .zip files, and pulls files out of existing .zip files.
there is also gzip, bzip2, and many more.
Extract, then run.
Thank you for your contribution, but who said anything about running random executables?
Your missing the point. No [sane] linux user is going to allow you to unpackage-execute without knowing what is being executed. If this utility is for _your_ use, then just write a script.
