Thanks to Bert and Photothingy for the picture!

As for me:

Been in IT since 1990 - worked on mainframe (COBOL) first - side-stepped on Open VMS sysman for a while - got loads of experience on Lotus Notes afterwards - been dabbling on Silverstream for the last 2 years.

Made it back into the Notes world since june 03.

I started out on Perl thanks to "The Pragmatic Programmers" site. (Try to learn one programming language a year..)

[ELISHEVA]: Simple yes. and I did consider that. but this isn't one off . An important data source that I don't control is generating bom prefixed utf8 files and I'd rather not have to be munging files every few months.
[erix]: on teh other hand a SOPW is pretty much garanteed to get an answer from tux (and probably the module fixed)
[ELISHEVA]: plus it bugs me that something that *should* be simple, *should* work- unicode and noms aren't exactly the new kids on the block
[ELISHEVA]: well then since the obvious possible mistakes on my part have been ruled out, SOPW it is.
[ELISHEVA]: the data source, or one of them, is the OECD - they provide a *lot* of data that ought to be easily available to perl programmers.
[erix]: it might be cunning to mention the module in the title... :)
[ELISHEVA]: fancy that - a title that actually describes the problem :-)
[ELISHEVA]: but actually thanks for the reminder
[Discipulus]: DBI::CSV + utf8 = BOO?M
[erix]: in extremis we tend to forget stuff ;)
