You have two commands: "zip" and "unzip" that work like pkzip/pkunzip but they use different defaults...

have a look to the "-k" option.

Good Luck

You can use gzip, normally it is in all Linux installation, and it recognizes many different
compression algorithms.
gzip <filename> - compress
gzip -dn <filename> - uncompress
