Today I was tracing a double-encoding error in a web app. The Fun never ends!
Anyway, with encoding::warnings the problem was easily spotted.
So, if you are getting "garbage" output on some of your Perl scripts. do yourself a favor and try it. A good tip from an excellent write up about UTF8 and Perl.
And remember, boys, girls, and mix-ins,
m/(.)/ is a character, no matter how fat he is.
