in thread Getting mad with CGI::Application and utf8

There is another aproach: one i use from time to time. Dont use perls borken utf-8 support. Pass the Argument -C0 to perl at the head of your script , and perl will treat all strings as raw binary. As long as you only break your strings on well defined boundaries, and dont attempt to naively count characters, it will work fine. If you need to truncate a string at a certain arbitrary point, such as "100 bytes" or so, you will have to make sure it stops at a well defined UTF-8 endpoint.

[ovedpo15]: it isn't homework. its a module I use at work. The process to add additional module isn't worth it. p.s never heard a university course which teach perl
[marto]: there are many, to this day.
[ovedpo15]: @Corion Yes I use the regex you showed me. its very good regex. although now i need to know that substring unit that comma
marto mad corrections to one around 18 months ago
[ovedpo15]: my code checks the value after that comma, if it isn't valid it will remove it. so I would like to remove the substring after that comma meaning getting the string before comma.
[hippo]: Are you sure that Text::CSV_XS isn't already installed at your work? It's such a useful module that it might well be there.
[marto]: pointing out the advantages of cpan modules is well worth in, as both developer and $client/$company benefit greatly
[Tux]: $src =~ m{^(.*),(.*)$/ and $2 !~ $valid and $src = $1;
[Tux]: s,/,},
