    I used -V without the quotes - oops. Am I out of luck?

    Part of the reason why I recommend using the _CLI versions of the
    executables - they accept either DCL format (/VMS = -"V") or UN*X
    format.

    ZIP_CLI and UNZIP_CLI - RENAME them to exclude the _CLI suffix in the
    name, for ease of use, then I include them in my hardware architecture
    specific directory in my DCL$PATH.

    YMMV...

    D.J.D.
