Zipping and unzipping a file in Python is child-play. It can't get much easier than this. Well, in Windows you can highlight a couple of files and right-click and select from the WinZip menu. Here's how to do it in Python:

>>> import zipfile
>>> zip = zipfile.ZipFile('', 'w')
>>> zip.write('file1.txt')
>>> zip.write('file2.gif')
>>> zip.close()

Still confused? Read this article for "Dev Shed"n: then. The article includes some more advanced uses as well.
