gzip -d works with gzip-compressed files, typically with a .gz extension.
For .zip files you need to use unzip or any other ZIP-compatible
decompressor.

When I try running $ gzip -d file.zip I receive the following error: gzip:
file.zip: unknown suffix -- ignored. The same thing happens when using
--decompress instead of -d.

Thanks,
SirFireball3521
