    Try opening a shell and typeing: man zip

    It brings up a manual page for me on Linux.

    You didn't say which flavor of Unix!? Try executing gzip to see if it's even found on your system: "gzip -h" ... if it's there it will print a help summary.

    If it's not there ask your system admin for help in getting a copy of it.
