Zip/Gzip "split" archives?


Couldn't find it in the man-pages :
How to use either zip or gzip to create a "split"-archive?
I mean : With ARJ , back in my old DOS-days , I could generate multiple , tied archives by adding "-rv1440" to the archiving-command and the entire archive would be created in neat slices of 1440kB each ; Comes in handy , when having to rely on floppies.
Then , again with the proper command , these archives could be extracted in a single "row".
Is there even a way , to achieve something similar with either Zip or Gzip?
