@Tom answered this question in your other thread.
Zipmagic - sounds like a non SAS tool- you need to search elsewhere for answers.

If you had taken the time to visit zipmagic's website, you would know that it is Windows-only.

 

Take a look at the zip/unzip commands available on most UNIXen, and the p7zip package for Linux with the 7z and 7za commands.

A quick overview of the compression/decompression tools typically available on a UNIX system can be found here:

https://en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/Guide_to_Unix/Commands/File_Compression

In-depth information is available in the manual pages, present on UNIX as either

man command

or

info command
