 What are Zipped Files Anyway?
        Zip files are "archives" used for distributing and storing  files. Zip files contain one or more files. Usually the files "archived" in a Zip are compressed to save space. Zip filesmake it easy to group files and make transporting and copying these files faster.

 Benefits of zipping files:

  File Spanning
    Some files are too large to fit on one floppy diskette. With file spanning, we can enable the file to fit onto 2 diskettes. This will enable us to transport the program to another machine by first reassembling the split file into a folder, then installing the program onto our computer's hard drive. Let's begin.
