in thread How to generate random sequence of UTF-8 characters

Here's another way:

my @chars = ( 0..9,'a'..'z','A'..'Z' ); print @chars; __DATA__ 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

update: And one more:

my $string = join '',0..9,'a'..'z'; $string =~ s/([a-z])/$1\u$1/g; print $string; __DATA__ 0123456789aAbBcCdDeEfFgGhHiIjJkKlLmMnNoOpPqQrRsStTuUvVwWxXyYzZ

[stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.
[shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
[shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
