Unzip /F and /U not working in V12

#1
If I use UNZIP with either the /U or /F switches, no files are extracted
even though the zip file contains many files that are newer than those in
the target directory. This is with 12.00.26 under XP.

I can reproduce that.

And UNZIP /C doesn't work very well:

Code:
v:\ziptest> type test1.txt
foo

v:\ziptest> zip zipfile.zip *.txt
<= V:\ziptest\test1.txt
<= V:\ziptest\test2.txt

v:\ziptest> unzip /c zipfile.zip test1.txt
??
?
It's the same for "zip /c".

Code:
v:\ziptest> zip /c zipfile.zip test1.txt
??
The help says "ZIP /C" and "UNZIP /C" do the same thing ... is that so?

And ...

Is there a way to **uncontitionally** put a file into a zip archive, replacing
it if necessary (and regardless of timestamp)? It's the default behavior of my
ZIP.EXE.

v:\ziptest> zip zipfile.zip test1.txt
<= V:\ziptest\test1.txt
TCC: Error in archive V:\ziptest\zipfile.zip :
File already exists in the archive. "V:\ziptest\test1.txt"

v:\ziptest> u:\zip.exe zipfile.zip test1.txt
updating: test1.txt (172 bytes security) (stored 0%)
