Sorry again. The server is "quarantining" the file.
Will show it inline (it's quite small, and as you can see, innocuous):
#! /usr/bin/env perl
# this is from Perl & XML,
# ET Ray & J McIntosh
# O'Reilly & Associates, 2002
# Example 3-3, p 46
$parser = new XML::Parser( Style => 'Tree' );
my $tree = $parser->parsefile( shift @ARGV );
print Dumper( $tree );
