Hi all,This is in reply to the 'Compressing folders in Windows using
Python' query I raised y'day.

I figured out that windows does not allow command line zipping so I
started looking for alternatives.

I found some modules in Perl which does zipping. I guess it goes by the
name 'gzip'. I plan to write the zipping feature in Perl and import it
into Python.

Thanx a lot for all those who took time to answer my query. If you find
any loophole in the above approach feel free to drop me mail...
