swelz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks,

the problem is easily explained : When i want to print any UTF-8 encoded strings inside mod_perl2 on apache2 i always have to include :

use utf8::all; or  binmode STDOUT, ':utf8';

which does the same afaik :-P What is wrong here sorry cant tell. And besides : Sorry that this is probably rather a apache or mod_perl question but dunno whom to ask!

thx & regards, Steven

    So, what is your question?

    There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
      should'nt it be UTF8 cappable by default or rather what directive in apache or mod_perl would make UTF8 default for STDOUT ?
        ++ for a good question, but, no. Perl can't tell if you're sending utf8 text or a binary file (e.g., you have a mod_perl script that generates a PDF and sends that instead of html). Only you as the programmer know enough context to decide what format to set the output to.
