    Thanks for reply. Rep given.

    I thought that ZIP does not exist in Unix. Tar file.

    It usually is bundled with newer distros, if not you can download it and or use a package manager.

    
    yum install zip unzip
    
    OR
    
    apt-get install zip
    
    Code (markup):
    I personally use tar/gzip though.

    
    tar -cf blah.tar folder/
    gzip -9 blah.tar
    
    Code (markup):

    I don't really see the benefit of zip.
    if you run
    tar czvf folder.tgz folder
    you get a compressed (gzip compressed) tar file without having to install anything

    I'm partial to bzip2, as it tends to compress better than gzip.

    tar jcvf filename.tbz folder
    Code (markup):
    Note: it does take a bit longer to compress if there's a large amount of data.
