Sorry David, I forgot to forward your email address to my home,

Further information about Perl complaining about the pipe key:

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for cygwin
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

The problem happens on any line that uses the pipe character (which is OR in
Perl), if I comment out line 8 then the next occurance of the pipe is

$ perl -c Mammals.pl
Unrecognized character \xA6 at Mammals.pl line 8.

1 package Mammal;
3   my %cls_basedata   = ( legs => '4', tail => 'yes' );
4    my $cls_population = 0;
6   sub new {
7      my $type  = shift;
8       my $class = ref ( $type ) ¦¦ $type;
        my $self  = { %cls_basedata };
        my %data  = @_;
