Do you mean to do this from a pyogram? –  John Saunders Aug 8 '10 at 20:14
As an alternative you can use Info-ZIP or 7-zip. What platform are you on? –  David Foerster Dec 21 '13 at 20:10

No, the command-line version does not support the zip format.

There are other command-line tools to create zip archives, though. For instance, check out http://www.info-zip.org
