MUBA

Well, it's a long story. First of all, the name doen't mean a single thing. Once upon a day, I was about to go play Quake II online and I was in need of a new nickname. Suddenly, out of the blue, "[MUBA]Muppet" popped up. Again, it didn't mean anything, but it sounded ok to me so I adopted the name. Then I joined a clan (for the uninitiated: a group of players that operate together in clanwars, i.e. online team battles) and they forced me to get rid of the [MUBA] part. I became [QiT]Muppet but that was a rather annoying name, so I changed the Muppet part to MUBA: [QiT]MUBA and ever since, my nickname is MUBA.

Update: Replaced all occurences of [ and ] with [ and ]

[erix]: Giro d'Italia won by Dumoulin (peccato Nibali)
[ELISHEVA]: csv_detect_bom doesn't work either
[erix]: (SCNR)
[ELISHEVA]: I may have to resort to SOPW - but was hoping that this would be something simple
[erix]: I'd just remove the BOM, it is pretty simple
[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.
