DropScript is a little Cocoa application (for Mac OS X) that lets you drop any program onto it which takes files as command line arguments and creates a new application from that program. Generally, these programs are scripts written in sh, perl, etc. So you can now write a shell script like so:
gzip -9 "$@"
Then call the script "GZip.sh", drop that file onto DropScript, and out pops DropGZip.app next to GZip.sh. When you drop files onto DropGZip, it compresses the files for you.
