I though that, maybe, the last access date is not maintained under Windows (I am usually working on other operating systems, I don't know Windows well, I just use it as a work station) and therefore the -A file test does not return something sensible.

But I've just tried under Windows:
perl -e "print -A qq/foo.bar/"
and it did print 356,825... And by the way if I use -M, I get a much larger number.
So I was wrong in this hypothesis.
If exactly the same code work with -M and not with -A, that is quite strange. Does it print anything?
