in reply to Unicode puzzle

Answering myself, after benefitting of Ikegami's suggestion about where to look.

As almost always, CPAN has a solution and this time it is Unicode::UCD. So I can write

$ perl -e 'use Unicode::UCD qw(charinfo); use Data::Dumper; print Dump +er( charinfo( ord("é"))), "\n";' $VAR1 = { 'digit' => '', 'bidi' => 'L', 'category' => 'Lu', 'code' => '00C3', 'script' => 'Latin', 'combining' => '0', 'upper' => '', 'name' => 'LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH TILDE', 'unicode10' => 'LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A TILDE', 'decomposition' => '0041 0303', 'comment' => '', 'mirrored' => 'N', 'lower' => '00E3', 'numeric' => '', 'decimal' => '', 'title' => '', 'block' => 'Latin-1 Supplement' };
et voilá.. :) Thank You, that's all I was looking for.

[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
[1nickt]: The app expects threads as default anyway, right?
[choroba]: that's true
[1nickt]: expects threads *to be* the default
[1nickt]: I think cpanfile can handle the logic. testing now.
