[OAI-implementers] Perl & Unicode/UTF-8
Wed, 8 Jan 2003 17:17:06 -0000
(in reply to earlier posts on problems with Perl & UTF8)
Perl 5.8 has much improved support for unicode, including the ability to
"convert" from one mapping to another, e.g.
Will read in latin1, and output in UTF-8.
It also checks that what you output is in UTF-8 - any non-UTF-8 data
(See the core Encode module for how to convert abitrary strings.)
All the best,
