This should be what you need, this also includes how to zip files in perl. It may be a PIA, but it will work.

If you don't want to use the Archive::Zip module, you can always just do

system "unzip file.zip" and die "Can not unzip file.zip $!\n";

The code will unzip all of the files in the named zip file to the current directory.  If you want, you can change your directory first using:
    chdir('/path/to/save/files') or die "Could not chdir: $!\n";
