How do I unzip files on the DevTerm?

This may be a stupid question, but how do I unzip a file on the DevTerm? I thought a tool like Archiver would be part of the distro but I can’t find anything.

The CLI tools should be readily available, and depending on your compressed file you can use unzip or tar

For the GUI application I am not sure which one comes by default on Raspbian (I don’t have the device) but maybe Xarchiver. @Godzil could confirm.

If its not installed you can install it with sudo apt install xarchiver or any GUI compressed file manager of your choice.

Thanks. Yeah it seems like Xarchiver is not part of this distro. I would have installed it but I had Wi-Fi issues. CLI tools worked.
