I know that. That is the reason why I was caught off guard. I have 
become
so accustomed, for many years, to have $/ = "\r\n" by default on any 
Linux
box I worked on, that I thought to anything but a different value for 
it.

Of course, my memory may very well fail me on this. At this point, mine
is just a curiosity like "did $/ change at some point in Ubuntu, or 
better:
in Perl as packaged for Ubuntu?" But just an unimportant curiosity, 
really, no need to
reply unless you really have the answer on the top of your head.

Thanks,
Marco
