    If I try to use the new wildcard for ziparchives and I run into files that already exist, I get a "(Replace) (Y/N/A/R)?" with no explanation in the HELP of what those choices mean. Also, the UNZIP seems to work for the first file and then quits.

    It's the same prompt used in the other file-handling commands. It's
    documented in "Page and File Prompts".

    Not reproducible here -- can you tell me the exact syntax you're using?

    "unzip /o *.zip"

    It returns a report on the first file unzipped and then returns to the G:> prompt leaving the other zip files in the directory still archived.
