In working with PDF::Template, I had to deal with this directly because I was working on an app that was seamlessly presented in 12 languages. The short answer is that Perl 5.8+ treats strings as purely Unicode.

Before that, you pretty much have to use Unicode::String and accept the performance penalties (which are quite significant). *shrugs*

Now, Parrot-targeted languages will have Unicode built into the ASM (as it were), but I'd direct anyone interested in this to read the parrot mailing list for more info.

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose
