I'm not sure if you should have two numbers. First try the stuff mentioned
below, if it still fails try "(temp)\n0\n\n\n"
When run from the command line your output should show up as the following
lines, however without quotes:
"/usr1/people/yamada$ ./temp.pl"

Provide a number for maxbytes or leave the line out.

Add a line "Options[temp]: gauge
