Default Downloading tut's in OS X

Hi, I normally used to download the tutorials in Win2k with no probs but my flatmate just bought an ibook and seeing as the universities library has an incredibly fast connection *nudge* *nudge* *wink* *wink* I thought I'd get a few of the larger tutorials that i've really been wanting to download from the library on the ibook, but when I try and download them it ends up downloading a *.pl file which I have no idea what it is, its the same size as the tutorial but I cant open it, ive tried renaming its extension to a zip like all the rest but no go. Is this a problem with the the IE for mac or just the simplymaya server not liking sending to macs? Any ideas how to fix this?

Rename to .zip should work basically the file is the same when downloaded on a Mac it just ends up with the wrong file extension.

Default .pl on mac

i had the same problem on a mac using system 9.2.1 - got round it by just dragging the .pl file onto stuffit expander v6.0, and hey presto - windows movie gets unstuffed

hope this helps,
tony
