you need the  unzip(1)

NAME        unzip  -  list, test and extract compressed files in a ZI

DESCRIPTION        unzip  will  list,  test,  or  extract  files  from  a ZIP        
archive, commonly found on MS-DOS  systems.The  default       
behavior  (with no options) is to extract into the current       
directory (and subdirectories below it) all files from the       
specified ZIP archive.  A companion program, zip(1), creates
ZIP  archives;  both  programs  are  compatible  with archives
created by PKWARE's PKZIP and PKUNZIP for MS-DOS, but in many
cases the program options or default behaviors differ.
