The zip file format enables you to compress and archive data. In LabVIEW, you can programmatically compress one or more files into a zip file while maintaining the directory structure.
|Note Zip files are a subset of archive files, which include other file formats, such as RAR, TAR, 7Z, GZ, and so on. LabVIEW supports the zip file format only.|
Refer to the labview\examples\File IO\Zip\Zip Files.lvproj for an example of using the Zip VIs to create a zip file.
