I get an error when trying to load a URL that contains a file that was saved
using save(object, compress=TRUE):

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

The above file will remain at that URL for your testing.

Thank you very much,

Frank Harrell
