Aside from the rest said in this thread, maybe you should consider the fact 
that it's a cross platform scripting language's responsibility to provide 
compatibility for the operating system, not the other way around.
Also, Perl should really be cremated already, but you can file that 
under 'opinion'.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
