The C128 version does the same in 15 minutes. Burst read rules..:-)
PuZip now also has its own page ""
Links go to and fro, so it should be easy to locate even without the URL.

One major thing missing is the filename mapping, which may cause
problems on some files. If someone has the mapping figured out,
I'll happily take input. (You can always binary edit the ZIP file
to change the file names, as long as they are the same length.)

If it supports deflate it should work. Otherwise you need to locate
unzip for mac, which shouldn't be too hard on the age of web.
