Your problem may be that whatever browser you use inserts at least one 
space at the left margin of the cut and paste text. If the EOF at the end 
of the script text does not start at the very beginning of the line, then 
it is not accepted. I suggest you either download the scripts, or use the 
ASCII Version of the book and extract the scripts by means of a text
