In addition to Athanasius' caveats, realise that when you write "\n" to a text file, the OS will add the "\r" for you.
Thus your advice to use local $/="\r\n"; will result in "\r\r\n" being written if the file is in text mode.
In order to avoid that addition, you must binmode the file. Or remove the :crlf layer from the perlIO stack.
