The script will prompt you for your password if you do not specify it. The contents would look something like this: 24270:Permutations and combinations 25730:Life in the land of OOP, and I'm confused. 17890:Shift, Pop, Unshift and Push with Impunity! 32005:Apache::MP3 34786:Why I like functional programming The default record seperator is a tab. I recommend you use it since just about any character is fair game for a node title. =cut
