As a slightly off-topic response, please note that QSHELL + Java gives the Java jar command which will zip/unzip files for free on the iSeries.

The standard command syntax for pkzip is:

pkzip -options zipfile files to include.

So if you wanted to include all *.txt files, you'd use:

pkzip mytxt.zip *.txt

If you need more then please post:

The directory which contains your files, and
The command use attempted.

this is from PKZIP 5.0:

PKZIP ARCHIVE('/qdls/turnover/test.zip') FILES('LIB/FILE(member)') TYPARCHFL(*IFS)

the result TEST.ZIP can then be FTPed to UNIX

ftp command:
after login:
NAMEFMT 1
bin
put /qdls/turnover/test.zip /opt/turnover/test.zip
