in reply to Re: pack mangles utf output
in thread pack mangles utf output

Hmmm ... I converted the utf character to hex in both output lines and here's what I got:
without pack: e28093
with pack: c3a2c280c293

Could be my version of Perl (5.89) or my platform (Windows 7), but it is not working for me.

    Yep, perl-5.8.9 under Linux affected
    $ perlbrew exec --with perl-5.8.9 perl -MDevel::Peek -e 'use utf8; Dump pack 'A20', "FREIGHT  INTRASTATE"'
    SV = PV(0x1d14100) at 0x1d11350
      REFCNT = 1
      PV = 0x1d69870 "FREIGHT \342\200\223 INTRASTA"\0
      CUR = 20
      LEN = 32
    $ perlbrew exec --with perl-5.10.0 perl -MDevel::Peek -e 'use utf8; Dump pack 'A20', "FREIGHT  INTRASTATE"'
    SV = PV(0x1773098) at 0x178e288
      REFCNT = 1
      PV = 0x1798ca0 "FREIGHT \342\200\223 INTRASTATE"\0 UTF8 "FREIGHT \x{2013} INTRASTATE"
      CUR = 22
      LEN = 32
