Basically I am working on a shell script in Cygwin which requires me to zip a couple of files (it must be a zip can't be gzip). The server I'm working on does not have the zip binary installed and I can not install it as it would require an RFC (request for change) to be done.
The only way I can create a zip for now is to select the files I want in Windows environment right click > send to compressed zip folder. But this defeats the purpose of having a shell script to do the work.
Is there ANY other way I can do this either through the Unix shell or Windows CMD?
