Besides using a table to infer it from $^O, is there any other way to detect it?

It's not neat, but you can actually write a newline to a file and then read it in binmode:

use warnings; use strict; open FH, '>', 'out.txt' or die $!; print FH "\n"; close FH; open FH, '<', 'out.txt' or die $!; binmode(FH); my $stuff = do { local $/; <FH> }; print unpack('H*', $stuff), "\n";

Tested on Windows, where it prints 0d0a and on Linux where it prints 0a.

You could clean it up, use File::Temp... whatever. But, unfortunately, you can't get by with an in memory file or IO::Scalar.

    [1nickt]: pryrt I am creating a Type to check valid user IDs, which must be a whole number greater than or equal to zero. I would like to disallow 1.0 but because of this behaviour, by the time it is checked by the constraint, it *is* an Int.
    [LanX]: should this be considered? Re: Parsing .txt into arrays
    [LanX]: and this Re^4: Hash user input
    [pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
    [pryrt]: 1nickt: if you are checking for valid user IDs, then I wouldn't care about the difference between 1.0 and 1: I would take either as a valid representation of the integer user ID#1
    [LanX]: and this Re^2: extract column data
    [Lady_Aleena]: I have two sub recurse { my ($directory, $other_var) = @_; my @files = file_list($directo ry); for my $file (@files) { if (-f $file) { do "stuff"; } if (-d $file) { recurse(" $directory/$file" , $other_var); } } } This was when I hated File::Find.
    [tobyink]: 1nickt: your code?
