Don't know what kind of hacked version of perl you got, but you need to give -i something.

MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!

    From perlrun:
    -i[extension] ... If no extension is supplied, no backup is made and the current file is overwritten.

    However, on Dos and some other OSes the extension is mandatory. This is due to the fact that these OSes cannot unlink an open file.

    I imagine it's a regular perl, but the platform is something other than Windows.

    See perlrun and the latest p5p digest
