   Using which version of Zip?

      zip -v

> [...] in open 7.3

   On which hardware architecture (Alpha, IA64, VAX)?  Exactly V7.3, or
what?

      write sys$output f$getsyi( "version"), f$getsyi( "arch_name")

   It's too large for Zip 2.x, not for Zip 3.x.

      http://info-zip.org/
      ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/src/zip30.zip

   You'll also want UnZip 6.x

   VMS V7.3 (non-VAX) should be new enough for large-file support in C,
but you may need a C RTL ECO to make it work properly until V7.3-2.

   If you lack a C compiler, let me know, but I'm not sure how much I
can do to match V7.3.
