Default calling winzip from the command line

I've always called Winzip from Win2K batch files with this command line string:

winzip32 -e -o C:\ C:\MyDirectory

However, now I have some password-protected zip files to deal with, and I need to know what the arguments are for opening those. Somebody thought you should put a -s on the end and then the password, but that's not working for me, and I can't find it in the help files or with Googling around, so if you know, please help me out!

Sounds like a question for our Emily. Unforutanately, I think she's still at bandcamp.

Never mind. It's easy (yeah, my boss told me the answer). If your password is 1234, you just put that after a -s (and there's no space between the -s and the password).

For example:

winzip32 -e -o -s1234 C:\ C:\MyDirectory
