How to zip files directely from command line and using build-in zip support. Windows XP seems to have this support in zipfldr.dll. Does any body got an idea how to create a zip folder directlly from the shell windows?

It should be something like :
rundll32 c:\windows\system32\zipfldr.dll ...


Thanks for answer
