Is it possible that Paul's problem has to do with ^M characters at the
ends of the lines?  A file transferred in binary format by ftp or by scp
from a Windows machine to unix will have those annoying characters at the
ends of the lines, but not all programs will display them.  I've had many
occasions where students have been unable to run scripts, or whatever,
because of those ^M characters, but they didn't know what was going on
because they couldn't see the characters.
