I thought I sent this message but I don't see it. Apologies if
it's out there twice.
If the file was corrupted by being transferred in ascii mode
instead of binary, you can fix it. There's a program in the
window's world called NOCRLF that will do it. Or if you have a
language or a good hex editor, replace the carriage return/line
feed pairs with a linefeed and that will fix.
