It depends. Unless all your text processing tools are UNICODE-smart, you can easily end up with a BOM at the beginning of any line, not just the first, and really they could end up anywhere, depending on what you're doing. Imagine using cat and paste on files with BOMs. In my experience (and I've had quite a bit), I almost always end up having to delete BOM-looking strings from the entire file, not just the beginning.

Lady_Aleena was checking #cbstream and saw the big announcement.
[marioroy]: Tie::IxHash can be shared. Also similar modules. I cannot wait to post a solution sharing Tie::File and iterating among workers.
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Yes, will post something with all the new features. Parallel with few lines of code.
[marioroy]: Yes, will do for PM. I love PM.
Lady_Aleena ponders a meditation of her own, but it would be on a far far less important topic.
[marioroy]: I'm hoping to have a release in about a week's time.

marioroy MCE isn't important by any means. Just wanted to complete this task. Hobo needed more love and MCE::Shared as well. It wasn't easy at all.
