Just as a note to myself and maybe helpful to others.
To compress all files in zip file in a directory:
zip test.zip *.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 joost joost 111M Jul 21 14:23 test.zip
If you want to split up the zip file because it is a bit too big (111MB) we can use the zipsplit command.
Lets pass the -t parameter to first let it explain what it would do:
joost@xbox-360 ~/Desktop/moos $ zipsplit -tn 10000000 test.zip
12 zip files would be made (100% efficiency)
ooh yes I wants that!
joost@xbox-360 ~/Desktop/moos $ zipsplit -n 10000000 test.zip
12 zip files will be made (100% efficiency)
And there you have it.
