Ok, I will go on your statement that perl is not setup properly.  I found *8*
perl binaries on this computer (one of them is version 4.x) and not one of
has associated with it.  i guess the easiest way is to install a new
copy of perl (#9) and use that for tests.

I think I have to stick with 5.002 for now, because we are still using
OpenClient 10, which I was told works with 5.002 but not 5.004.  If this is
wrong, please point me to some documentation that I can use to persuade
them to
use the latest and greatest.
