Building a library - need zipped file

I followed the Morse code example posted here . Almost to the end.
Ended up with cpp and header files and Sketch wanted a zipped file!
ZIpped as what ? Is that for real?
Any help would be appreciated.
Looks as coping both files into a directory and coping the directory as new library directory will work without zipping things.

Hi, The usual practice/convention is to distribute libraries as ZIP files containing a folder that is the folder that needs to end up in the users's 'libraries' folder.

Arduino IDE 1.0.5 and 1.5.5 have a "Install Library" feature that will take a ZIP file and correctly install it.

See this on the ArduinoInfo.Info WIKI HERE:

When you have your library working in it's folder in your 'libraries' folder, ZIP that FOLDER and distribute it. If you have a 'examples' folder inside your library folder, it will show up in the IDE File>Examples.
