this could be one for Genius Bar or Software... so decided to put here for the time being.



Is there any shareware or freeware that will allow me to right click on a ZIP file and be able to see what's inside before uncompressing?



if there isn't, it would be a nice little project for all you hackers out there

    unzip -l nameoffile.zip



    (note that is a lowercase 'L')



    It should be only a matter of time before some smart freeware/shareware developer whips up a GUI for it.



    Oh, and moving to Mac OS X since the zip is a feature of Panther.

    Cool! Thanks, Brad. You are a fountain of knowledge.



    ps - good luck with your coke habit.

    You know what would be nice is if the Finder preview of the zip file listed the contents.
