This is a recurring question, and a known issue of DOS/Windows versus Un*x
(*not* an issue with Samba).  In fact, there is a .txt file in the docs
that were installed with your Samba distro addressing this very issue.

There are a mryiad of possible ways to deal with this on the Unix side.
You can just make a script to run your Perl files through.
