Glad to hear it, although I do still think it's strange that characters just went missing in the terminal, so I still have a small suspicion that you may have control characters in your strings (they usually don't affect editors as much as they can affect the terminal). Using $Data::Dumper::Useqq=1; or Data::Dump to look at the strings may still be worth it.

    Thanks, I agree that it is strange as the distribution of missing \t seems very random. But I've printed the array using $Data::Dumper::Useqq=1; and there are no odd characters there.

    On the same run, looking at the output through the terminal (head outputFile) resulted in missing tabs, but viewing the file locally in a different text editor didn't.
