no dice.  I don't think the script works.  I tried every combinations of 
quotes and every verion of the calls in both the pl and non pl 
versions.  Even without an error, nothing gets downloaded.  Anyone else 
that can help?

matthew at ubuntulaptop:~$ gpsfetchmap.pl --start-lat 40.3847 --end-lat 
40.5661 --start-lon -74.2593 --end-lon -74.3194 -sc 10000 --mapserver
