    But, I must say that I myself have not received anything back from
    Princeton when I asked for a copy of PCL.  I was just given these
    directions from somone else, so I will let others explore this and
    let all of us know when they get a working set of directions.

    Hopefully someone will get this to work soon.

We have successfully downloaded PCL beta 3 rel through the bitftp service
at Princeton.  This is the message we sent:

Along with this message, we received 19 other messages.
We stripped out the first 18 lines of the protocol
(with `tail +18l ) we concatenated them all in the proper order ('cat),
uudecoded the big file obtaining a SARTI.TARFILE file which
was "untarred" with `tar xvf SARTI.TARFILE
This produced a ./pcl directory containing all the beta 3 files.
