You have to make use of system or exec commands to execute tar and then gzip.

I dont think c++ has seperate utility or library for tar/gzip.
Experts, pls correct me if i am wrong.

If you really have to to it directly from C++ try these (Google search). I think it would be easier with prad77's suggestion.
