It is not possible to avoid the command line here :)

When a program put's its stuff to standard output you can capture it  
with redirection by using > filename such as
osis2mod args > wlc-osis.xml
where args are what you gave the program
and where wlc-osis.xml is the name of the file to create.

(Chris, piping is a way to connect one program to another and it uses  
the '|' character. The standard out of one program connects to the  
standard in of another.)

I use gzip from the following:
