I posted this in the Geoprocessing forum and then I thought I should post it here - sorry if this is redundant.

I need to take all of the shapefiles in a directory and compress them into individual zip files. I need to take, for example, the roads shapefile and get all of the files named roads.* into roads.zip, the schools shapefile, schools.* into schools.zip, and so on, for hundreds of shapefiles.
