in reply to Directory operations and Unicode

What is the state of the directory operators (opendir,readdir) regarding Unicode support?
That's been in perltodo for how many years now? 8? 10? I'm too depressed to find out the exact number.

    Yep. I've found this problem recently while trying to write a script that would reparent (change the root of the folders with the files), check and let me fix my loads of /\.m3u8?/ files. Horrible mess. Plus you would not believe what does copying the folders from a unix filesystem do to names containing accentuated letters. And the names were in Spanish (latin1), I do not want to try to imagine what would happen if they were in Czech (latin2) :-(
