in thread Sorting utf-8

Looking at the docs (and guessing at the UTS#10), I'd say that the Unicode collation algorithm is locale independent: it is supposed to give a collation key for any Unicode string (the fact that they are encoded in utf-8 is immaterial, BTW)

So I'd just use Unicode::Collate->new()->sort(@list)

If you want to customize the results, then you'll have to understand the UTS#10, but otherwise it should "just work"

Most of my code is tested...

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)

    Hmm, pretty cool if that's how it works - from looking at the constructor arguments I was wondering if you'd need a hash defining per-locale options, but maybe not.

    I would pay a LOT of money for a book that explained Unicode in a non-geeky manner :)
