Description of problem:
I have a Perl script which writes the Binary output data file. This

on WS 3.0 Update 1 with the same input. Now, when I try to access

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It does write a binary file. But it is totally different from what it
writes on a RH 7.3 - though its the same input file and same perl
I had upgraded Perl on WS 3.0 to version 5.8.3. As of now, could not

P.S: Redhat yet to release a patch on this!!!!!
