Questions about the availability of files from the Technical Support website are best handled by Technical Support. You may want to contact them <support at wolfram.com> directly to see if they offer thes files via anonymous FTP. You may download a file in binary mode by holding down the shift key while clicking on the hyperlink that initiates the download. I am unsure whether Netscape Navigator has a way to specify that a file be downloaded as text. Under Windows, try letting the browser download the file into the browser window and then performing the menu command File -> Save As... On the resulting dialog window, set the file type drop-down list box to Text (.txt). If that does not work, go get a shareware/freeware utiliity that translates newlines from one OS convention to another (UNIX -> DOS). You can also write a program in Mathematica that does this. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
