Unicodeness and deprecated -C on shebangby wanradt (Scribe)
|on Apr 17, 2009 at 18:11 UTC||Need Help??|
wanradt has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Fellow devoted, not too many moons back i asked here about your knowledge and got some good hints to get my perl things be more unicode-aware, i mean node Pragma to handle unicode characters
Now I upgraded my perl to 5.10 and got a bit of surprise yelling me:
Too late for "-C63" option at ... line 1.First i thougt it as bug, but from perldelta i read:
The -C option can no longer be used on the #! line. It wasn't working there anyway.
Maybe it wasn't working at all, but for me it somehow still worked. So, i'm looking for alternative: how can i turn UTF8 on on every possible IO from inside of code.
There is also option to use env-variable PERL_UNICODE, but this is not always option. For example, how can i turn the variable on running CGI-script?
