Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Note: Command line processing in zip has been changed to support long options and handle all
options and arguments more consistently. Some old command lines that depend on command line
inconsistencies may no longer work.
zip is a compression and file packaging utility for Unix, VMS, MSDOS, OS/2, Windows 9x/NT/XP,
Minix, Atari, Macintosh, Amiga, and Acorn RISC OS. It is analogous to a combination of the Unix
commands tar(1) and compress(1) and is compatible with PKZIP (Phil Katz's ZIP for MSDOS systems).
A companion program (unzip(1L)) unpacks zip archives. The zip and unzip(1L) programs can work
with archives produced by PKZIP (supporting most PKZIP features up to PKZIP version 4.6), and
PKZIP and PKUNZIP can work with archives produced by zip (with some exceptions, notably streamed
archives, but recent changes in the zip file standard may facilitate better compatibility). zip
version 3.0 is compatible with PKZIP 2.04 and also supports the Zip64 extensions of PKZIP 4.5 .....
If indeed you need to use 'zip' then I suggest that you read the 'man zip' pages.
