If you must use v2.91 (now superseded by v2.92), you need to add 


to your command line.  This is not needed with v2.92 for this programme,
as Nick Payne has shown, although the option is still available.  I
downloaded this programme on 04/01/2015 with v2.91 (v2.92 not yet
released) and needed this option to download the programme.
