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

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.
