How to zip several files to several zip with one command?
 
Assumed I have following files:

test1.txt
test2.txt

What I want is I want to zip these files with one command so it looks after that:

test1.txt.zip
test2.txt.zip

Code:

for filename in *; do zip $filename; done
first, try the zip command by itself to be sure you know how it works

You might also be able to do:

Code:

zip *

I don't understand what you said here, especially your code. How to run it?

I solved the problem. It's easy.

gzip test*

I got:

test1.txt.gz
test2.txt.gz

That's what I want.
