Q. PKZIP command line version 2.5 finally handles long file names.
There is also infozip and cygwin's zip.
WinZip does but you can't use it in a batch file.
pkzip25 myfiles.zip -add this_is_a_long_name.rtf *.txt
This will make archive myfiles.zip with contains file this_is_a_long_name.rtf
and all *.txt files in the current folder.
