Tables to cross-reference state-city-postal codes?

I want to be able to match state-city-postal codes. So if a user enters a city\state, I can give them the correct zip codes for that area. Or the correct list of cities based on a zip.

I would also like to do radii matches. So if someone in a city-state-zip wants a list of others within a certain radius, I can give them a matching list.

Are there any ready-made schemas to do this?

There are ready made paid versions out there. Do a search on zip code databases on google and you'll come up with a lot. Depending on how you want to use it you may need to pay different fees (for example if you want the list distributed with the application).

There are also some free lists and servers but I'm going to go out on a limb and say you pay for what you get. It really depends on how serious the application you are developing is and how strigent the requirements are for zip code matching.
