FTP shell script

Hi
I am new in UNIX field. I don't know if I am posting in right forum or not. And I have also found out that there are so many posts about ftp shell scripting. I have tried those but actually having some problem.
Well, my script should do the following..... It finds files( the filename ended with the date) inside a directory. Then it zipped those files. Then it ftp's the zipped file to target directory and mail the location where the zipped file is kept.
I am able to find the files but having the problem with zipping them.Can anyone help me with that?

On Unix, tar or cpio is usually used to bundle files and gzip or bzip2 is used to compress a file. You do something like:
Code:
tar cf - `find ...` |gzip > out.tar.gz
