Archive::zip is how fast compared to zip? (As in the shell tool named
"zip" that is already in binary form).

I seem to be finding that it's quite slow relatively?

I'm writing a perl script to zip my source code, with a filter. The
filter will make it so that certain files or folders don't get zipped.
For example on OS X, the "build" folder won't get zipped, meaning that
my zip file only contains the source and not the built result. This
gives me a zip with all the important info, but no bloat.

Is perl the best route for this?
