CentOS Linux Install zlib-devel RPM Package

How do I install zlib-devel (header files and libraries for Zlib development) package under CentOS Linux 5.x server using command line options?

The zlib-devel package contains the header files and libraries needed to develop programs that use the zlib compression and decompression library. This is also used by many third party packages. You can use the yum command as follows to install the same:
# yum install zlib-devel
