It's "convert whatever newlines to the Windows newlines".
\R does indeed mean, "whatever newlines".

Assuming you have upgraded your Perl in the last 5 quarters.

    Ah, I didn't know that. (I guess I would have been better off with the module too, eh?).

    And you didn't even know bears could type.

      Don't get me wrong. I never claimed people shouldn't use modules. I never claimed the module used in the example shouldn't be used.

      I just don't think using a module to replace a substitution consisting of a single 2 character token as the pattern is a great example of how timesaving modules can be.
