Z

http://www.cs.indiana.edu/~kinzler/z/
'Z' is a simple frontend for the gzip, bzip, tar, compress/uncompress, and zip/unzip utilities for compressing and uncompressing files and directories. The new compressed or uncompressed version will be in the same directory as the original. It processes its arguments according to the type of the file or directory given: If the argument is a plain file, then the file is compressed; if the argument is a compressed file with a name ending in .Z, .gz, .z, .bz2 or .zip, then the file is uncompressed; if the argument is a directory, the directory is archived into one file which is then compressed; if the argument is a compressed tar or zip archive with a name ending in .{tar.,tar,ta,t}{Z,gz,z,bz2} or .zip, then the archive is uncompressed and untarred.
