You will need to dowwnload the Zlib module and install it first: http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=Compress-Zlib

use Compress::Zlib ;

chdir("/your/folder");

while <*.dat> {
  open(IN_FH, "<$_");
  $gz = gzopen($compressed_filename, "wb"); # write binary
  while (<IN_FH>) {
    $gz->gzwrite($_);
  }
  $status = $gz->gzclose() ;
  close(IN_FH);
}

You may also use the Archive::Zip module available from CPAN to do the same task.
