I work in digital forensics and electronic discovery. In the real world, sh*t happens. I often have to wrestle with damaged evidence of all kinds. Ignoring it is not an option. But I can't just ask the bad guys to recreate the incriminating evidence for me—this time, please, without all the nasty character encoding damaged text in it.

So, yes, I often keep such text without a newline in a file on its own.

[erix]: that's a good one. I must remember that :P
[stevieb]: I really dislike how perlbrew doesn't list your version of perl if a newer minor version bump has happened. eg: I use 5.24.1, but 5.24.2 is available, hiding my 5.24.1. I may look at this, as I made it display correctly in berrybrew in cases like this
[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
