Why cant you try it in unix machines.Any how good try with linux and freeBSD. But what i tried is with unix HP-UX B.11.11. Might be you check here if u can.
More over i am fond of reading Perl in 21 days where this doc was described. May be you can check that and put your comments to the author of the book
Since you are that much confident with your idea i need to give you the result what i got from your code
perl -le 'print $^X'
May be here according your code unix may performing wrongly. If so put a cc to unix group too apart from 21 days author.
