I'm not sure whether this is a MySQLism or part of the SQL spec not 
implemented in PostgreSQL, but I suspect the former. INTO OUTFILE is 
not valid in PostgreSQL. You might want to look at the COPY command

<http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/sql-copy.html>

, or perhaps using \o in psql to redirect results to a file.

<http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/app-psql.html>

The PostgreSQL SQL command reference lists valid SQL syntax. I think 
you'll find it useful.
