This is true and all that you have to do is download it to the Windows box.
It does not have to be opened or edited in any way. I found this the hard
way with FormMail.pl that I use in my CGI-BIN. I did the edit on my local
Linux box and put it back on the server. The the ftp through Windows broke
the script. After I used ftp from my local Linux box and put it back on the
server without going through the Windows box it worked.
