Below programs illustrates the use of getSize() function

Example 1: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using getEntry() function and then get the uncompressed Size of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. we will take a “.zip” file as ZipEntry
