Unix zipping to DOS unzipping

Which unix command do I use to compress a
UNIX file and subsequently download this file
to my IBM PC and uncompress it using PKUNZIP ?

Thanks in advance

There is a compatible Unix version of PKZIP.  It is in the comp.sources.unix
archive, I believe.  The programs are called zip and unzip.  You can find
them via archie.  There is a command line switch (-k) to convert names and
paths to MSDOSD style when you zip them.

They are actually in comp.sources.misc and not comp.sources.unix archives.
You can grab all the pieces from ftp.sterling.com in

/usenet/comp.sources.misc/packages/zip
/usenet/comp.sources.misc/packages/unzip
/usenet/comp.sources.misc/packages/wizunzip

Here is the info from the comp.sources.misc index if there is an archive
closer to you.

<Thick and stupid mode ON>
Ok. Aren't these in C and need compiling?
Not being a C programmer they are less than useless!
How about a quick C tutorial!
<Thick and stupid mode OFF>

:->

But seriously, I download these some time ago and assumed that one of the files
that was called something like 'makefile' or 'makezip' or something like that
was to be used for creating the zip / unzip programs, but couldn't get them to
do anything!

The versions I got did come with Makefile; I don't remember where I got them.
I don't have the latest versions of either, so sending you mine would also be
worse than useless.  They were in archives with a tar-z extension.  I found
that renaming them to tar.Z allowed me to uncompress them and extract the
files with tar.

: Ok. Aren't these in C and need compiling?

Yes.

: Not being a C programmer they are less than useless!

No.

: that was called something like 'makefile' or 'makezip' or something like that
: was to be used for creating the zip / unzip programs, but couldn't get them to
: do anything!

The makefiles are used to let non-programers (and programmers too)
compile complex C programs without knowing nothing about the internal
structure of the program.

When you have the sources for something, the 1st thing to do is read
any README or INSTALLING or *DOC, in these kind of files you find
(usually) the info you need to compile something.

How easy is the task of compiling something depends normally of the
Makefile, some makefiles know about a lot of different operating
systems and you only have to tell them what system are you using.

You don't run a Makefile, you just cd to the directory and type:

        make

Very different things can happen then, when I run "make" on my Zip
Makefile I got:

        Make what?  You must say what system to make Zip for--e.g.
        "make bsd".  Choices: bsd, bsdold, sysv, sun, next, next10,
        hpux, dnix, cray, 3b1, zilog, aux, convex, aix, and minix.
        See the file zip.doc for more information.

Now, this mean that I have to supply a parameter to let "make" know
what to do.
If my unix system is some kindo of BSD I will type:

        make bsd

And wait for the best...

But remember that compiling C sorces is sometimes an hard job, but if
you keep tring you'll eventually succed...
