The command is tottally compatible with PKZIP (Phil Katz's ZIP for MSDOS systems). The zip command is pretty good for packaging a set of files for distribution and/or for archiving files; and for saving disk space by temporarily compressing unused files or directories.

Simple Examples

The syntax is as follows:

zip file1.txt file2.doc photo.jpg

To zip resume.doc and all *.c file, enter:

zip resume.doc *.c

To zip data directory, enter:

zip -r data
