Hi All,

I am working on MF Cobol using Net Express
I need to know a equivalent Cobol library call for Zipping a file.
Currently they are using linux command "gzip" to zip the file
Can you please help me in getting an equivalent library call for the same

Thanks in advance

start from http://www.info-zip.org/ to get a grasp of zip/unzip issues

free zlib libraries are available as c source code,
You can find them at www.zlib.net and start from there

ask legal advice about the usage of free software inside Your organization

Mainframe Zip packages, except for gzip / gunzip, tend to be from independent software vendors who charge thousands or tens of thousands of dollars for their software. There is no free API that I am aware of to do COBOL CALL statements for zipping and unzipping on the mainframe.
