    Default Turning java files into .zip format

    Hi! I just finished up some assignments that I need to send in, and to send it in, I'm given the instructions:


    create a zip file to submit your assignment files. From your command prompt (shell window/terminal), change into your assignment directory (make sure it contains only the assignment files that you want to submit) and use the following command:

    zip filename.zip *.java

    When I do this however, I get "zip error: Nothing to do! (assignmenti.zip*.java)"
