I finally went and looked at the code.  The above error is because the
| command is only available on DOS[like] systems, it's #ifdef'ed out
for Linux/Unix.  It says to use the region filtering instead.

So, to continue answering my own questions, replace | with a mark at
one end of the file and ! to mark.  Slightly less obvious but hardly
difficult.  :-)
