If your machine has the gzcat command available, how about:
  gzcat file1.gz file2.gz ... filen.gz > myoutputfile.txt

(If you don't have gzcat, try zcat; or just use gunzip -c)

Is this what you had in mind?

you can do something like that:

for file in tracer.err.23354.10Nov2010_040357.gz tracer.err.23354.12Nov2010_040346.gz; do echo $file |  sed -e 's/.*\.\([0-9]\{2\}[a-zA-Z]\{3\}.*\)\.gz/\1/' >> output.txt ; zcat $file >> output.txt ; done

for all files you put in the in clause it does this:
this extracts date and time from the filename
writes the date and time to output.txt
writes the content from this filename to output.txt

If I understood correctly you want this? Or did you mean another time to write into the output file?
best
