Philip, what kind of system are you on?

Mac and Linux has the 'file' feature. The link to gave downloads an uncompressed tar file.
(uncompressable using 'tar xvf')

How windows users are suppose to deal with that, I have no idea

Well, I would have looked at the source, had I been allowed to,
but the source link takes me to :


which my system does not recognise as being a gzipped tar (.tar.gz)
file, amd since Arxiv will also not allow me to Wget it, I cannot
check what MIME type it has ...

Anyhow, as I said earlier, "this one will run and run".  Let's
draw a line underneath it now :


No, that won't work : %LATEX-F-PARSERROR, unrecognised command "\hrule".
