Zip/Unzip Files

Zip/Unzip Files

This Unix program is compatible with the zip program for DOS and Windows.

To zip files, first have the files uploaded to your server, then log into your account with secure telnet and navigate to the directory where the files are that you want to zip (for example by typing cd www then cd sounds).

Then type: zip myzip file1 file2 file3
This puts the files "file1", "file2", and "file3" into a new zip archive called "".

If you had the archive "" and wanted to extract the files, you would type: unzip myzip

Typing zip or unzip by itself will give you a usage summary, showing the options available.
