jar xf to the rescue

Sometimes I have to open some honking 4gb+ zip of vm junk and zip acts like a freaktard…

B U S T E D ! ! !

% unzip some_fat.zip
Archive:  /home/brian/some_fat.zip
warning [/home/brian/some_fat.zip]:  787777765 extra bytes at beginning or within zipfile
  (attempting to process anyway)
error [/home/brian/some_fat.zip]:  start of central directory not found;
  zipfile corrupt.
  (please check that you have transferred or created the zipfile in the
   appropriate BINARY mode and that you have compiled UnZip properly)

Solution:

% jar xf some_fat.zip
# go have a coffee...
