[thelist] Perl scripts in Mac

So Fetch should be okay for uploading Perl scripts, then?  Sorry, but I'm a
WS_FTP (Windows) guy at heart, and anything else just confuses me...

| Sorry, one other thing: if/when you do download bbedit, turn on the
| 'show invisibles' option (Edit > Text Options > Show Invisibles) when
| viewing some of those simpletext documents. Another handy feature is
| 'zap gremlins' (Text > Zap Gremlins) which gets rid of (or replaces
| with a character of your choice) the non-pure-ASCII characters.
| One final thing to check for would be the line endings, you'll want
| to set those to either Unix / PC depending on your target server
| (although Fetch should sort this out for you).
