Data Zip files inside the directory, but not the directory itself

Hi,

Im facing a problem that im stucked,

I have the following structure:



Code:
thales@pereirtc-vbox:/home/VfARM$ ls
code  config  doc  lib  manifest.bak  manifest.rel  manifest.v3  ns  pub


if i try to execute
Code:
zip -q -o arm.zip VfARM/*

it will create a zip file with the folder VfARM. What i want to do ( or at least im trying... ) is to create a zip file only with the files inside the folder, but not the folder.


Anyone Know if is possible?


Thanks !
