If you're doing business on the Internet, sooner or later
you will encounter a Zip file. A Zip file is simply an
"archive" of one or more files compressed into one file for
easy distribution.

Zip files are used to compress and transport file archives
over the Internet. It is the preferred method used for
electronic file distribution, as rather than downloading
several different files, you can simply download one Zip
file. In addition, the download time will be minimized, as
the files within the Zip archive are compressed.

Once a Zip file is downloaded, it can be easily opened and
extracted (unzipped) with a Zip/Unzip software program.

Although there are many Zip software programs available on
the Internet, WinZip is the most popular. WinZip makes
working with file archives simple. It features an easy
point-and-click, drag-and-drop interface for viewing,
extracting, adding, deleting and testing archived files.
