Thanks for the reply.

I am a bit confused.  I am running this script strictly command-line in 
Cygwin.  There is no URL or browser activity involved.  While I might 
have Privoxy installed, it seems to me that the actual call in Perl is 
not getting interpreted; that is, the call is stopped by Perl before it 
even gets to Privoxy due to some missing library interface.

Or, Perl calls Javascript as part of its operation?  What am I missing 

Thanks for the help.
