    You need to replace "unace" with "./unace" in that command, or else add
    "." to your PATH, at least temporarily. The problem may lie in trying to
    determine where the "unace" command is coming from. Perhaps there is a
    script file with a ".command" suffix that you can edit to make the
    necessary change.

    Thank you Dave, for you'r quick reply,I should have added that I am a
    complete novice in terminal.Do you think you could run me through it?
    I alterd the above text with "./unace" in the 1st&4th line and tryed to
    clip and paste this is the message

    "./unace e "/Volumes/maxtor 1Film/untitled folder222/1111/Henry 1.ace";exit
    -bash: ./unace e /Volumes/maxtor: No such file or directory
    logout
    [Process completed]
    I will fully understand if you think I am a hopeless case but hope you can
    spare the time
    thanks victor

    From the error message it looks as if you might have an extra quote mark.
    I meant to make the substitution without quotes. That is, if the script
    contains a command like

    unace e "/Volumes/maxtor 1Film/untitled folder222/1111/Henry 1.ace"

    then my suggestion is to prepend the characters "./" (without the
    quotes), yielding:

    ./unace e "/Volumes/maxtor 1Film/untitled folder222/1111/Henry 1.ace"

    There should be a file named "unace" in that directory whose name appears
    in quotes above, and it should be executable. You might try the terminal
    commands

    cd "/Volumes/maxtor 1Film/untitled folder222/1111/Henry 1.ace"
    ls -l unace

    to see whether the file actually exists.

    Hej Dave,
    cd "/Volumes/maxtor 1Film/untitled folder222/1111/Henry 1.ace"
    ls -l unace
    comes up with that there is no such file or directory!

    what there is on that disc is 48 14.6 mb doc that make up the film,all named
    Henry 02.00.upp to.48 except the first one witch is called Henry02.ace
    When I try to open this file with MacLinksPlus I get there is no translation
    tip available.
    Thank you very much for your time do you have any more ideers?the film dosnt
    realy matter it is the understanding of what can be done that matters to me

    You could try the command

    find "/Volumes/maxtor 1Film" -name unace

    to see whether it's on the CD anywhere. If it's not, then it's time to
    Google "unace Mac". I found <http://nicolas.sandri.free.fr/softwares/>,
    which mentions unACE, but says it only works with old ACE files. It does
    indicate that unACE is evidently the new name for unRAR, and there are
    some links for unRAR on that page.

    This command gives:-
    find: /Volumes/maxtor 1Film/.Trashes: Permission denied
    /Volumes/maxtor 1Film/tmp/unace

    I installed PCTtools (witch has unace included) on that disc and my hard
    drive in the inslall instructions it said to use this in terminal <- to see
    how use unace
    [localhost:~] you% unace
    This is the reply
    [localhost:~] you% unace
    -bash: [localhost:~]: command not found
    should I put something else inside the brackets??
    once again thank you for your time and trouble

    Ok, there's a copy on the CD. Did you install it on your hard disk?
    This is not strictly necessary, but it's much more convenient.
     

    You are not supposed to type the "[localhost:~]" part. That is supposed
    to be your bash prompt. Your prompt may look entirely different,
    depending on what shell you are using. The default is tcsh. The command
    you should type is simply

    unace

    or, if that gives you a "command not found" message, then something like

    /whatever/the/path/is/to/unace

    where you need to substitute the actual path. Better yet, locate unace
    in a Finder window, drag the icon to a Terminal window, and notice that
    the full pathname has just been pasted in to the command line for you.
    Then press <return> to execute the command.

    This is what we get :-
    xx$ /Volumes/maxtor\ 1Film/tmp/unace
    UNACE v1.2 public version

    Usage: UNACE <command> [<switches>] <archive[.ace]>

    Where <command> is one of:

    e Extract files
    l List archive
    t Test archive integrity
    v List archive (verbose)
    x Extract files with full path

    And <switches> is zero or more of:

    -y Assume 'yes' on all questions, never ask for input

    xx$ unace
    UNACE v1.2 public version

    Usage: UNACE <command> [<switches>] <archive[.ace]>

    Where <command> is one of:

    e Extract files
    l List archive
    t Test archive integrity
    v List archive (verbose)
    x Extract files with full path

    And <switches> is zero or more of:

    -y Assume 'yes' on all questions, never ask for input

    xx$ -y
    -bash: -y: command not found
    xx$ e
    -bash: e: command not found
    xx$ t
    -bash: t: command not found
    xx$ v
    -bash: v: command not found
    xx$ x
    -bash: x: command not found
    xx$


    I suppose something like unace e 48/maxtor.ace ??
    Have been reading learning unix for osx by o'reily and could not even find
    out how to get to the external hard disk via the terminal feel realy dumb!
