in reply to Unicode problem

Works for me, Perl 5.8.2 on Linux. I wrote:

use utf8;

open my $fh,'<:encoding(sjis)','j.sjis.txt';
my $string='言葉';
print index(<$fh>,$string);

saving it as '' as utf-8, and


saving it as 'j.sjis.txt' as shift-jis.

Running it:

$ perl j.sjis.txt

(yes, I used <pre> instead of <code>... but <code> would not let me use character entities, and without the proper characters this answer would be useless)

Most of my code is tested...

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

    Sorry, it was my fault, the short lookup string was incorrect (I can't read Japanese, but need to work with it). Everything works fine now.

    Thanks all for the help.
