secondo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Esteemed and enlightened readers:

When I try to save the output of a perl script process to a file using a newer computer running Windows 7 with Strawberry Perl, redirection fails where it worked in the past.

For example, the command line pashtoUTF8.txt > charlist.txt

results in an empty file named charlist.txt being written to the current directory.

Other Perl scripts perform as expected.

Can someone help me understand the issue?

Humbly and gratefully yours,
