minizip(1) create ZIP archives


minizip [-o] zipfile [ " files" ... ]


minizip is a simple tool which allows the creation of compressed file archives in the ZIP format used by the MS-DOS utility PKZIP. It was written as a demonstration of the zlib(3) library and therefore lack many of the features of the zip(1) program.


The first argument supplied is the name of the ZIP archive to create or -o in which case it is ignored and the second argument treated as the name of the ZIP file. If the ZIP file already exists it will be overwritten.

Subsequent arguments specify a list of files to place in the ZIP archive. If none are specified then an empty archive will be created.
