A poor workman blames his tools
An ignorant person makes assumptions.

#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
use perl::always;
my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
print $perl_version;

    Never heard of that proverb :) and FWIW, I don't see where I made any assumptions, you ask "why is perl to blame" but you don't show that it is, you simply say that it is :)

    OTOH, every time you post a quesiton/response you get a link to How do I post a question effectively? which says to show some data that demonstrates the problem, you could use  perl -MData::Dump -MFile::Slurp -e " dd scalar read_file shift, { qw/ binmode :raw / }; "  tenlinefile > tenlinefileasperl.pl

      Greetings,
      In all fairness, I must admit, I should have been more concise.
      But in my humble defense; it's easy for me to know what I mean when writing to the list, w/o fully considering the fact that others aren't – a fact that I must better consider in future posts. :P

      --chris

      #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
      use perl::always;
      my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
      print $perl_version;

        Greetings, In all fairness,

        :) We've all been there , and I must admit, I should have used spoiler tags for that , or kept my fingers shut, or been explicit from the start
