Q: Linux Command Line Encryption

Sorry for a question which I'm sure a lot of people on this list will
consider trivial, but I'm subscribed, so I might as well ask it here.
I need a Linux utility which I can use to encrypt a single gzipped file
via the command line. Obviously something open source would be
preferable. I'm not really interested in setting up a whole suite of
stuff with keyfiles and so on, and I don't need a public/private key
setup, just something quick and dirty with a single secret key for
encryption and decryption which is nevertheless reasonably strong.
Thanks in advance.
