in reply to Perl prints junk before file

The first I thought when I read this, was "BOM marker?".

But the bytes don't seem to fit.

    Oh. i dont know how to check that. or fix it. for now i'm using substr and removing the first 3 characters. :(
      3 characters? Or 3 bytes? That would be weird bytes, judging by the sample output you posted... But maybe they got converted again, after the fact. So it could be a BOM marker after all.

      You could try out File::BOM.

        Yup this was the problem. It works now. Thank you!!
