in thread international case insensitive searched with Perl

Usually? No they don't. They usually call them "non-ASCII characters" or "Unicode characters" - the latter being inaccurate because the ASCII characters are also in Unicode.

And even if people did usually call non-ASCII characters "international characters" it's still inaccurate and therefore not helpful, because "d" is both an ASCII and an international character. You can see how international it is by referring to a French, German, English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Polish etc dictionary.

[erix]: antisemitic && (pro-)russian. Makes sense :P
[shmem]: erix: what's antisemitic in there? Tell me.
[erix]: AngloZionist
[shmem]: and it is *not* pro-russian. It describes the western world.
[erix]: I'm not going to read it so I could be mistaken but it reeks of useful idiocy
[shmem]: AngloZionist is not an antisemitic term.
[shmem]: erix: be assured that we all are horribly mistaken, always. What would we write tests for, if not for that fact?
[shmem]: and then, audiatur et altera pars.
[erix]: and what's the "Vineyard"? Don't tell me it's doing supernatural stuff too.
