Definitely agree with the idea of slurping the whole file into a string in binary mode, assuming it fits - or maybe there is a variant of Tie::File for binary files that might help here (I did a quick search on CPAN and nothing jumped out)?

In any case, if you are transferring files between systems, and possibly different OS's using something like FTP - make sure you use binary mode for the transfer.
