He ran it and replies:

tony-******-macbook-pro:~ tony******$ perl --version This is perl, v5.8.8 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level (with 4 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) <<snip>> tony-******-macbook-pro:~ tony******$ perl m.perl Name "main::FILE" used only once: possible typo at m.perl line 27. Drag and drop a file here: /Users/tony******/Desktop/x.txt Invalid type 'W' in unpack at m.perl line 12, <STDIN> line 1. Now, regarding your concern about extra bytes... plausible: Note the space after x.txt... the square is probably my cursor.

Notes: (1) I anonymized his post by replacing his last name with asterisks, and (2) He included a screenshot that shows a blank after x.txt, which he alludes to in the last line. So his results agrees with the testing that you and louis.roca performed.

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.
