Looking for a Windows XP command line to show if files in a directory are compressed.

Is there a command line tool that can show the attributes for a file/directory/tree that will show the compressed attribute?

I want to get a list of files on one of the servers, but filter it to those that haven't been compressed (with the compressed attribute - not ZIP/RAR/gz/etc.)

ATTRIB only deals with RASH (ReadOnly, Archive, System, Hidden), so nothing changed there since 1980 or so.
