And similar to this, because the only Perl they may have seen has been "poorly written Perl", they think it's not possible to write Perl well. Again, these large companies doing huge volumes of ecommerce with Perl are disproving that.

[LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
