i just used read.fwf
(which calls perl)
and i noticed something.

i also have mat;lab installed on this machine,
and matlab also installs a version of perl,
but a different one.
additionally, matlab puts its bin directory in the system
path. so, if one does not canerully set the path,
r will call the matlab verion of perl,
and things won't work.

if anybody is collection a list of pitfalls,
this probably should go there.
