in thread DBI, unicode, ms sql server
Yeah, I read that already. The gist of it seems to be that unicode is enabled by default on Windows with the latest version, but that utf-8 will be converted to utf-16.
i.e. : "perl scalars which are UTF-8 and are sent through the ODBC API will be converted to UTF-16 and passed to the ODBC wide APIs or signalled as SQL_WCHARs (e.g., in the case of bound columns)."
I didn't see anything in the docs about how to actually get around that, however.
