Hi, I noticed that the zip command is not installed in the class docker image. So, in the docker image I can only use the gzip command and the resulting file has a gz suffix. but assignment1 requires a zip file to be submitted and I can only compress it into a zip file outside the docker image. I would like to know if this is allowed? Or can we submit compressed files with gz suffix? Thanks.

Using gzip (and then gunzip) on the directory containing the script(s) is also fine. In retrospect, given that I've been pushing Unix/Linux specific tools, for authenticity I really should have asked for Linux native gzip over the more optional zip. Next time. For now, please feel free to use either. Cheers MichaelW
