I tring to compress and extract on the Linux box.

I want to compress files a directory under /tmp and all the subdirectories and files. Send it to someone and when they decompress it have it create the same directories and subdirectories. I tried it the same way as the dos pkzip but it leave all the files mixed in one file.

Any help in this would be great.

I hope this is easy, I see a ot of others doing it.

Thanks in advance
Bob Ross

I'm assuming you got grading to work, since the points and the 'A'  grade just popped up for me.  My first grade, and it's an A.  Made my day :)
