Sorry but this may come through twice. I forgot how I was subscribed.
I haven't found the answer ... yet and I am looking at perldoc.com, but
I'll ask here 'cause the search isn't going well.
I am processing files on a Windows system from a Linux system that has the
share as a SMB mount. I'm using Marc Overmeer's Mailbox collection to
process spam folders (mailboxen) and any time the process (re)writes the
file I end up with NLs instead of CRLFs. This causes all kinds of
heart-ache and discontent with the users as they can't pop the messages
back using Outlook.
Is there a setting I can use 'perl-wise' to make all "\n" writes be
"\r\n". The perlport man pages indicate to me that $/ applies to read not
write and the example only shows one character being used.
Of course given my record this is a samba issue or I totally missed the
correct man page.
