revised Having trouble compiling BFLT Utils: can't find libiberty.h, despite being installed
Made the question title less generic. It's very much specific to this one combination of project and OS configuration.

comment Extract one file from multiple zip files
@Phil: Re: "any you recommend to install or avoid" Don't bother with anything that you can't install via Cygwin's setup.exe. Third-party native-Windows utilities will not play well with Cygwin.

comment Extract one file from multiple zip files
@Phil: Re: "will not accept wildcards" This is either the same confusion as above (gunzip vs unzip) or you are trying to run Cygwin commands through PowerShell or cmd.exe. Use the Cygwin Terminal, which runs Bash by default, which has the same quoting and wildcard processing behavior as a Linux box.

@Phil: Re: "it recognises gunzip". gunzip is not the same thing as unzip. Re-run Cygwin's setup.exe and install unzip.

comment Extract one file from multiple zip files
@Phil: I asked two questions, but you only answered one. How many zip files? One for each file1.gz, or just one zip file containing all of the nested file1.gz files?

comment Extract one file from multiple zip files
@Phil: So are you saying you just just one Zip file, containing many *.gz files, collected into sub-folders? That is, FolderName.zipdir1/file1.gz, dir1/file2.gz, etc., then dir2/file1.gz, dir2/file2.gz, etc? Also, is this an actual zip file, or a directory named FolderName.zip?

@Phil: jofel's answer is correct for the question as posed. If you need something else, your question needs to be different. You do realize that "THEFILE" in his answer is a kind of variable that you are supposed to replace, such as with file1.gz in your case, right?
