Jeanne meant to write:

    put compress(field "Outgoing") into URL "binfile:data.gz"

("file:" means treat the data as text, which means some bytes may get
changed to reflect different line endings on particular platforms.  You
don't want a hair on your data's head to be modified, so you need to use
"binfile:" to specify that.)
