Perl is my hammer, and I am surrounded by objects that could be construed to be nails...

I often show up at the Perl Monger's meeting for Sonoma.pm. See http://sonoma.pm.org/ for details about the meeting place.

Perl Mongers meets in Santa Rosa at 7PM on the last Tuesday of every month at Alembic.


Since 1979 in Nashville, these are the words that go with my name:
"It should work perfectly the first time"

[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
[LanX]: I think it's a flag problem ... I'll produce a reprodocable example for SOPW
[Corion]: "flag problem" to me sounds like "contains UTF-8 bytes but was never properly decoded to an UTF-8 string"
[LanX]: not my code ...
[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
