    Help unzipping a PW protected file

    I'm trying to unzip a PW protected .zip file from the command line. I can run the unzip, and it then prompts me for a password. What i'm trying to do it make an automated script, and it needs to put the password in automatically for me. How do I do this?

    Here is what I have tried:

    unzip -d /home/directory/public_html/images/ -p password

    Obviously the -p isn't working, is there a way to input the password automatically in a script?
