Hy guys, I want to compress my files into zip format. But I do not know how to compress a file into zip in Red Hat Linux operating system. I am very needed to it. Can anybody help me to give me what commend I use for it?
How can I compress files in Red Hat Linux
Below is a link from redhat.com showing step-by-step how to compress files and folders using either the graphical user interface or by using a shell prompt. You may notice that it is for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 but do not worry, the methods of file compression and decompression remain the same through all versions of Red Hat.
If you prefer compressing using the graphical user interface, you can use File Roller. If you prefer using the shell prompt (also called as "terminal"), you have several utilities that you can use such as bzip2, gzip or zip.
Whatever method you choose, Linux will get the job done.
Hope this helps.
