in reply to Conversion of unix LF to DOS LF issues

I seem to remember using binmode on the filehandles in a situation like yours; that may do what you want without your having to do any line ending translation explicitly. That only is important on non-Unix systems as I recall.

    Indeed binmode with the appropriate layer (see PerlIO) or even directly specifying it in open's mode string may well be the best way to go.

    I'd also recommend reading this thread in which a similar issue is discussed at length.
