looking for help with the following question please!
write a shell script that produces a zipped-tar version of any input directory canned 'dir-name, whereby ‘dir_name’ represents the relative directory name not the absolute directory name. the output should be sent to /tmp or a floppy device and should be of the form, dir_name.tar.gz
now i know how to start with the script but the zipped bit has thrown me.
help please, im a real novice at this.
