in thread Problems parsing UTF16 file

thanks for the link to the thread. I have tried to read the file with the two ways shown in the code below. Neither correctly identifies the end of line (cr/lf). The thread explained the layers, but something must be still wrong. I got a suggestion to use file::BOM, but it is not on the shared server I am using and the IT guy does not want to install it. Would that be a forward step on this problem?

# open (FH_SEGMENT_FILE, '<:crlf:encoding(UTF-16LE):raw', $file_ +segment_name ); open (FH_SEGMENT_FILE, '<:raw:encoding(UTF-16LE):crlf ', $file +_segment_name ); @segment_array=<FH_SEGMENT_FILE>; close(FH_SEGMENT_FILE);
