Summary0000624: setmode() on stdin/stdout/stderr

Currently, setmode() works on every file handle unconditionally. But if the handle is a console, it's better to set it to a text mode even if a binary mode is requested.

In practice, a windows port of perl behave like this. In fact, MinGW.

How about mimicing this ?
