How can I let users download any file? (preferably without zipping it)

Just link to it...then the users browser will decide (on how it has been programmed) how to react - whether to start opening the document automatically or start a file download.

instruct the visitors to "right click" the link and "save target".
no zip required that way.

What about command-line text browsers? They're controlled by the keyboard, and the only way to download files is to follow the link.
