Assigning to Deri so he can have a look and/or throw back to me.  I might have enough Perl for what seems like a relatively simple task.  :)

If I slip to gropdf a "download" file with only two tab-separated fields instead of three, I get the following spew.


Use of uninitialized value $file in substr at /home/branden/groff-HEAD/bin/gropdf line 1167, <__ANONIO__> line 1.
Use of uninitialized value $file in substr at /home/branden/groff-HEAD/bin/gropdf line 1174, <__ANONIO__> line 1.
Use of uninitialized value $file in concatenation (.) or string at /home/branden/groff-HEAD/bin/gropdf line 1174, <__ANONIO__> line 1.


In my opinion, gropdf should check that the lines in the "download" file are of satisfactory form, and throw a complaining diagnostic if they aren't.
