in thread Quick and portable way to determine line-ending string?

That will tell you the line ending found in that file, which is where it was last edited before being installed. perl will tolerate all kinds of stuff, but that's not necessarily the native line ending of the system it's running on now. That is, you could plop the same file onto a Mac or a PC and still see the same value.
