Delivering Files with lcServer ?

I started setting up a test page to demonstrate, and now I can't get
anything to work, not even my single page test which worked a dozen times
yesterday. [sigh] Not sure what changed.
At any rate, I've seen PHP examples that involve setting content headers
to facilitate a file transfer, so I figured since lcserver operates
similarly, it should be possible to initiate the download of a zipped file
(or any file).
Any examples out there that someone can point me to?
Thanks & Regards,
