On unix you can use pipe to compress dump. On windows I am not aware of such tool.

I'm not sure I understood the question but - if you want to compress export file, there are numerous archivers (Winzip, Winrar, just to mention the most popular in my part of the world). GUI versions won't let you compress DMP file without doing it manually, but there's a command line version available as well. It may be included into a batch file you use to perform export and - once the export is done - it will compress the DMP file.

So, if that's what you are looking for, ZIP line in the batch script might look like this:
c:\pkzip -a -ex F:\baza.zip F:\baza.dmp

Also, although you didn't ask for it, perhaps you'll be interested in adding current date to DMP file name:
@echo off
for /f "tokens=2" %%i in ("%date:/=_%") do set vdate=%%i
for /f "tokens=1,2 delims=:" %%i in ("%time: =%") do set vdate=%vdate%_%%i%%j
c:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\exp.exe userid=scott/tiger@orcl file=e:\syr%vdate%.dmp owner=scott
echo on

When executed:
c:\> test.bat
c:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\exp.exe userid=scott/tiger@orcl file=e:\syr07_19_2006_803.dmp owner=scott

On windows you can use winzip.I have used this one and it greatly reduce the size of your dump file.2 GB to 200MB.
