I am having difficulty loading a file over the web that was created with save(..., compress=TRUE):

> load('http://hesweb1.med.virginia.edu/biostat/s/data/sav/boston.sav')
Error in gzfile(file, "rb") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message:
cannot open compressed file `http://hesweb1.med.virginia.edu/biostat/s/data/sav/boston.sav'

I'm running on

major    1

Any pointers appreciated.  -Frank
