in thread Perl prints junk before file

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.

      So which editor was it that confused you by adding BOM?

      Because it wasn't perl :)

[ambrus]: Discipulus: oh sure. the input data has different filenames every time I get them.
[ambrus]: the directory structure may be 1, 2, or 3 deep, it may have spaces in the filename or not, it has dates in various format, different keywords for the same meanings, and the dates and other keywords are assembled in various ways.
[Discipulus]: no ambrus by specification i mean for example license per core instead of per socket, so fields are different
