      Can one write a zip file from R? 

      I want to create a file with a name like "dat.zip", being a zip 
file containing "dat.csv".  I can create "dat.csv", then call 
"system('zip -r9 dat.zip dat.csv')".  Is there a better way? 

      I can use "gzfile" to write a gz file, but I don't know how to 
give that a structure that would support unzipping to a *.csv file.
