The following problem is occuring on a FreeBSd server with perl 5.6
Source file is a PDF file of 39631 bytes.
A CGI script copies the file to a work file..
The resultant file is 43815 + or - bytes long - never a consistant size ??
This occurs using both a system call, backtick or File::Copy,
and some how grown file copy routines from usenet.
The unix cp command copies the file exactly.
Is there some binary mode problem here?
I'm at a loss as to how to copy this file so it remains the exact same size as the source file 'ala unix cp' .
I have never encountered this before.
