Zipping files two by two

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have a directory that has 800 files like this: file1.png [email protected] file2.png [email protected] file3.png [email protected] ... etc I need to create zip files like this file1.zip (containing file1.png and [email protected]) file2.zip (containing file2.png and [email protected]) file3.zip (containing file3.png and [email protected]) Is there a magic command I can use to do that? thanks.
