in reply to Automatic zip and delete

... a little utility ...

In my experience, you can do this with most file-zip utilities, e.g., winzip and 7-zip. It's called "moving" the file from source to destination. I haven't checked (your job), but I think pretty much all such utilities can do something like this.

    ISTR that 7-zip explicitly refrained from implementing a "move" command because of the great potential of losing files by corrupting the archive after having "moved" the file. However, I don't find the relevant discussion anymore :-(

    I posted this because I was sure that this type of utility had to have been written before, since this functionality would be extremely useful and I was surprised to find out that it wasn't included in 7-zip.
