Creating zip files

I’m sure this is a common question – is there a plugin/lib/gem for
generating and manipulating zip files from Ruby?

Never mind, I found “rubyzip” which appears to be the one. Nicely
packaged up as a gem and so on.

gem can be used for searching just as well as for installing:

~>> gem search -r zip

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

sufficent

In my defense I googled “ruby create zip files” thinking that I would
avoid getting more generic references to just any old zip file
associated with Ruby, but I ended up getting the reverse effect and did
get lots of irrelevant stuff with no mention of the ruby zip gem in
sight. Since such a thing did not leap out at me, I posted. But then a
minute later I found it and posted a “never mind”, and after that
everybody started responding :).
