Hmm... couldn't you create a perl script /usr/bin/perl\\r and have that handle the problem?

That's essentially what they did. A symbolic link is a UNIX way of saying: "this file is the same as that file over there". They're like Perl references, only for a file system.

The real problem was getting the symlink command to run from the shell command line: eventually, they gave up, and used perl instead...
