Here’s just a quick note to my future self (other people are free to take part of it too though).
When using the
* character to unzip several files using the unzip command on a Mac, the
* has to be escaped as unzip wants to do its file listing by itself, rather than having bash do it for it.
So instead of writing unzip
*.zip, you would write
Also as a final note to self, to unzip several zip-files into e.g. the parent directory and also ignore any directory structure contained by the zip file + overwriting any duplicate files, one would write
unzip -o -j -d ../ \*.zip
