I'm hoping that you're not putting your programs in QSYS....

As for a zip routine on teh IFS, why not just plain ole standard PKZIP or
WINZIP?  IFF you're thinking of ziping as/400 objects (other than data),
you're better to crtsavf, savobj/savlib>savf, then ftp...it's my
understanding that this zip util does a conversion to ascii...which for
pgm/system obj's and packed data is a problem...but then, I'm just
starting to look at this...
