I just tried this and it appears to have worked. I had copied the
original over to a temporary name. I did the tr command as you
suggested, then I ran the removecommercials script to test it. I got
the usage printout, so that's a good sign. Running the renamed,
original version gave me the original problem, so the file being in DOS
format seems to be what the trouble was.
Thanks to all of you who helped out on this.
