( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks for the offer, GrandFather, but it's not something I need immediately - and I probably need to browse the Strawberry Perl website to find the actual distro I'm looking for :-(
I'm curious about this "UNKNOWN" report. It's an odd one, and I would have seen if I could reproduce it if I could have grabbed that build of Strawberry Perl.
It's possibly nothing more than a botched installation, anyway.

A few times in the past I've had ssh support set up at, but the hosts always seem to have it disabled whenever I want to make use of it.
I'll contact them tonight, with the aim of getting it set up again so that I can wget stuff that I want, and then transfer it to my home network via scp.
I already have the "scp" capability - it's the shell access that I seem to be missing.

I'll also start making preparations to move to another ISP.
