I used -zipfile- for the first time and obtained an error with the
first syntax. Stata usually lets one use "save,replace" even if the
file does not exist. So the behavior below was unexpected and kind of
a nuisance. And it is contrary to the help file.

. zipfile eq5d2.dta, saving(eq5d2,replace)
option saving() misspecified

. zipfile eq5d2.dta, saving(eq5d2)
    adding: eq5d2.dta
successfully zipped
