Converting a Windows Perl script to a Linux Perl script.

What issues do I need to consider when converting my Windows Perl scripts to Linux Perl scripts. I already know about line breaks and obviously the first line #!/usr/bin/perl. Are there any other things that I need to change before my scripts should work in Linux?

Also, is there a program that will automate this whole process of conversion?

Thank You.

Any path name -- \ to /
Any disk name -- eg,. c:
Device names in general -- COMx to /dev/whatever

I would check the ASPN open forums -

Thank You very much.
I used dos2unix to sort the line break problems.
I may try writing a script to convert them in the future.
