I just uploaded and installed testzip.pl, and am getting procmail 
errors.  This is from my mailbox's procmail.log:

/etc/procmail/testzip.pl: ^M: command not found
/etc/procmail/testzip.pl: use: command not found
/etc/procmail/testzip.pl: ^M: command not found

I tried doing a wget on the testzip.pl file from the Linux server when I 
initially installed it.  I thought that maybe it was created on Windows, 
so I copied it from a web browser and pasted it in to a terminal.  Same 
errors.  I don't think it is just the line ends that are the problem, 
like on line 77 it looks like some other problem.

This is on perl 5.6.1 on Redhat 7.3.  I installed MIME::Explode and made 
sure everything else was there as well.

I don't know why it is giving an error on "mktemp" as it is installed:

# which mktemp

/bin is in the path for a normal user and also root.  I don't know what 
environment is in place when procmail runs.

I've disabled testzip.pl for now on my email server until I can get it 

Any ideas?
