I think you misunderstood. I don't really want the three files inside
the gzip. I want to gzip a single text file with the contents of foo1,
foo2 and foo3.
Ok. The problem then, if I'm following your code, is that you are
zipping the files independently and sending 3 compressed objects. I
understand that you don't want to concatenate the files first, but you
need to arrange to present them to gzip as a single stream. I'm not an
expert on the use of ports so I'm not sure how to arrange that.
