Ah, I'll leave it -- apparently zip is easy enough for them to handle so
zip it is. Can't believe a commercial compression fmt is *still* the
de-facto Mac standard...
(It's a *very* large script BTW, or at least it is when the required
packages (LWP, HTML::Parser etc.) are included, so I do pretty much need
to compress it somehow.)
Thanks for the help,
