Hi again,

I think I solved my attachements download problem: instead of just clicking on
the link to download the tar.gz file -- which download an unusable archive only,
I used the link in a wget command line :
$ wget
http://news.povray.org/povray.binaries.utilities/attachment/%3C55aa36ce%241%40news.povray.org%3E/povsyntax37.tar.gz
.... and this tar.gz can be read/open normally (I can even know the real
name/size of the file archived: povray.lang, 17.7KB).

I'm sorry, this method will work only for unixes system, but I know there exists
wget.exe for windows (so windows users can use this command line in a CMD CLI
window. There exists too a better shell "MSys" which is a portage of many GNU
commands -- plus a rxvt-like console. With it, you can write/use your prefered
sh/bash scripts in windows.
