Question to pose here:

Let's say I have a directory that contains subdirectories that I would like to zip in such a way that each subdirectory has its own zip file. Is there a way to do this with a script? I know I could do this manually but I would rather be able to just run the script

What I have so far:

ls -l $WORK/$SUBDIR > ~/listing
list="cat ~/listing | wc -l"
for d in $list; do
zip -r $ $WORK/$SUBDIR/$d

Something's obviously wrong with this though as it doesn't do what I want it to do
