in reply to It's a problem of motivation, Bob

This is all excellent advice. While I don't always feel qualified to help a lot of the people that come here, I think that might be what I need. Even if I don't help, I'm sure someone will tell me where I went wrong, so I learn not to do it again :).

A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking.

[LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ß is ss ?
[Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
[LanX]: I have my doubts, IMHO its a workaround if the glyph is missing
[LanX]: (they are pronounced differently)
[choroba]: perl -Mutf8 -Mfeature=fc -wE 'say fc "straße" eq fc "strasse"'
[choroba]: returns 1 for me
[choroba]: are they?
[LanX]: strict rules : the a is long in "straße" and short in "strasse"
[choroba]: So the "a" is different, not the "s" ;-)
[LanX]: people knowing that it's a workaround will pronounce it right
