includes both Zip (for compression) and Unzip (for extraction).

zip is a compression and file packaging utility for Unix,
VMS, MSDOS, OS/2, Windows NT, Minix, Atari and Macintosh,
Amiga and Acorn RISC OS.

Unzip unpacks zip archives.
The zip and unzip programs can work with archives pro-

archives produced by zip. zip version 2.2 is compatible
