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

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 >

    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


    #!/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

        #11939 Because the computer cannot read your mind. Guess what? I cannot read your mind *either*.

        This seems like the most appropriate one for this occasion -- no? :)

        Thanks for sharing.
