  This program simply collects files created from the cgImage2KML program and moves
  the files to a zip file with a *.kmz file extention. The program requires that the
  file archiver 7-Zip be installed on the user's computer. The 7-Zip program is freeware
  and is available for Windows, Mac, and UNIX users. Addtional information about the 7-Zip
  program can be found on the `7-Zip web page <http://www.7-zip.org/>`. The current program
  runs on Windows computers only, and with 7-Zip installed in the C:\Program Files directory.
  You may have to modify the path the the 7z.exe executable file to get the program to work
  correctly for you. The line to modify is clearly marked below.
  KMZ files are simply zip files containing KML files and support files. You can create your
  own KMZ files with any archiving software that supports the ZIP compression format.




    kml_filename: in, optional, type=string
        The name of a KML file to package as a KMZ file.
    supportfiles: in, optional, type=string
        A scalar or vector of files to be included with the KML file to be packaged.
        If not present, files in the same directory as the KML file and having the
        same base filename will be used.


    showcmd: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        Set this keyword if you wish to see the command being spawned by the program.
    silent: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        Set this kewyord to avoid output (except program errors) from being printed.


    Here is how to use this program with the Google Earth Image example in the
    `Coyote Gallery <http://www.idlcoyote.com/gallery/>`. The result is a file
    named "google_earth_image.kmz" that can be loaded into Google Earth.
