i'd just like to add that the shebang line ( #!/usr/bin/perl ) was always a source of majot headaches for me, when i developed on apache on windows, and deployed to apache on linux. a simple solution is to create the directoy c:\usr\bin\ and simply copy perl.exe into it (or create /perl/bin/perl on the linux machine, and put a symlink to /usr/bin/perl there).
this avoids the trouble of changing the shebang every time you transfer something from OS to OS.
the 'newline problem' is easily worked around by adding a '--' to the sheband line:
#/usr/bin/perl --
which tells the perl interpreter that everything after the '--' is code, and not some weird command-line options. You shouldn't REALLY need to do that as long as you always FTP your files in ASCII mode, but sooner or later some FTP program will mess this up, and with the '--' you can edit the files on a samba share, and everyhting works.
hope that helped,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
