Thanks for the replies I'm looking at them now, however, for those who
misunderstood, the above cat file.dos pipe pythong does not come from
Perl but comes from:

Nothing to do with Perl, Perl only takes a handful of characters to do
this and certainly does not require the creation an intermediate file,
I simply found the above example on wiki.python.org whilst searching
Google for a quick conversion solution.
Thanks again for the replies I've learned a few things and I
appreciate your help.
