in reply to Missing \t in print output

Thanks all for your suggestions, I've checked the array and it looks fine, unfortunately. I've also tried the following suggestion, but that didn't help either.
$" = "\t"; $normal_fh->printflush("@arrayToPrint\n");

    If one of your (presumed) tabs in the original data is actually a space, your regex will fail. Likewise, if the offending element is two tabs... KA-BOOM! So, as advised in the consideration, you should add code tags around your sample data (for our ease of helping) and use any one of a host of tools to doublecheck the separators.

    Can you show us the output of the print Dumper?

      I cannot reproduce the issue on a short scale, it only happens when the array has a large number of elements.
