Zutils

http://www.nongnu.org/zutils/zutils.html
Zutils is a collection of utilities able to deal with any combination of compressed and non-compressed files transparently. If any given file, including standard input, is compressed, its decompressed content is used. Compressed files are decompressed on the fly; no temporary files are created. These utilities are not wrapper scripts but safer and more efficient C++ programs. In particular the "--recursive" option is very efficient in those utilities supporting it.

The provided utilities are:

Zcat 
Decompresses and copies files to standard output.
Zcmp 
Decompresses and compares two files byte by byte.
Zdiff 
Decompresses and compares two files line by line.
Zgrep
