Here's what I am doing. Not sure why this doesn't work.

I want to transfer the UNIX executable portion of a Mac rev application 
bundle via ftp. I take the file; compress it to a .gz file; ftp it; then 
decompress it. The file size is identical upon arrival, but it is no 
longer recognized as an executable... only a text document.

I am using "binfile" throughout (put the compress of url "binfile:xxx" 
into url "binfile:xxx.gz"). What am I missing?  I am transferring from a 
Mac server to a Mac computer.
