Simple open source WinZix extractor program

Today I wanted to extract a WinZix file. The WinZix software is known to be adware infested and is only available for Windows. Someone fortunately documented the WinZix file format, but only released another adware-free extractor written in Visual Basic which I couldn’t run on Linux or under Wine, even after struggling with Visual Basic’s runtime dependencies. And I really wanted to extract my WinZix file.

Here is unzix, a simple program to extract the contents of those .zix files. Compile and link against zlib.
