in thread Cross Platform end of Line characters

Hmmm...

From perlport:

       A common misconception in socket programming is that "\n"
       eq "\012" everywhere.  When using protocols such as common
       Internet protocols, "\012" and "\015" are called for
       specifically, and the values of the logical "\n" and "\r"
       (carriage return) are not reliable.

           print SOCKET "Hi there, client!\r\n";      # WRONG
           print SOCKET "Hi there, client!\015\012";  # RIGHT
Doesn't that apply here as well? Or only if you want to make sure you're script has to be super portable?
