, you're exactly right: something bad happens to
the last byte. I need to fix that.
yosefm said that mysql still doen't support
unicode - well, the 4.1.0-alpha boasts 'extensive unicode support'. I have managed to store utf-8 data,
and retrieve it, and search for unicode characters
via the command line client.
if anyone's intrested in this: I keep a journal
on my adventures with mysql + perl + unicode
