in reply to Data Dumper utf8 utf-8 unicode

My question is how do i get Data::Dumper to handle utf8 strings and not produce ISO-latin-1 encoded utf-8 characters like x{....}

It can't do that; Data::Dumper creates those \x{...} escapes unconditionally. You could instead hack Data::Dumper as already suggested by almut, or look for a replacement for Data::Dumper. As there are several, I'm convinced that at least one of them will do what you want.

[LanX]: quick survey ... Module::Build, ExtUtils:: ModuleMaker or Module::Starter ?
[Your Mother]: Module::Install
[Your Mother]: :P
[LanX]: Moma knows best! ;-)
[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/
