pl/sql can't compress an external file directly.

You will have to use a java stored procedure or an external procedure to invoke a zip/compress utility for whatever file you want to compress.

If you are on 10g or higher you can use the dbms_scheduler to invoke an external program too.

In all cases though you'll be invoking something else
