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

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 
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.
