Zipping and Unzipping files

Zipping data into a file:

import zipfile
zipHandle = zipfile.ZipFile('archive.zip','w',zipfile.ZIP_DEFLATED
zipHandle.write('file_to_add.py')
zipHandle.close()
del zipHandle

Listing what's in a file:

import zipfile
zipHandle = zipfile.ZipFile('archive.zip','r')
filesInZip =  zipHandle.namelist():
for filename in filesInZip:
    print filename
zipHandle.close()
del zipHandle
