perl and apache


    this is a query that i am posting for a friend.

he is creating a zip file through perl on apache server on linux.
here is the code

The code will be like this:
<start of code>

push ( @list, "gzip");
push ( @list, "zipfile.zip");
push ( @list, "*.*");

exec "@list";

<end of code>

he says that the file is not being created. is such a thing allowed?? if it
is then where is the file created.

if the entire approach is wrong, how to tackle the prob

thank you
