The question is unclear because the situation is unclear ;-)

I am looking for a general answer, but the specific case is: running Perl in Cygwin on Windows. The environment is set to UNIX, but the files I need to edit are being munged by our version control system (P4). Some files remain UNIX-ified, but most are being bastar...uh...DOS-ified.

In order to keep the "diff" output clean (p4 diff does not have a "-b" flag...), I need to handle the file however it is given to me.

Thanks for the $/ pointer. I haven't looked at that in a very long time (I try to live in sane universes when I can...but now I'm being dragged into Windows again).
