I used this command
>zip -r name.zip myfolder
to zip files in a folder. I want to zip all the files in
myfolder without including
myfolder in zip file.
How do I do that?
I managed to overcome this problem using below command
>cd myfolder >zip -r name.zip .
you can use -j flag: junk (don't record) directory names
zip -j zippedFolderName.zip myfolder/*
Then, you files will be in the folder named 'zippedFolderName'.
