Tanktalus is trying to figure out how to get a case-insensitive match between stra▀e and strasse to return true in perl :( fc doesn't seem to do it, either, unless I'm doing it wrong.
[LanX]: ▀,ss
[LanX]: nope
[LanX]: /.*(?:▀|ss).*/
[hippo]: How are you doing the match? Regex, index, eq or something else?
[choroba]: fc $s1 eq fc $s2 I guess
[Tanktalus]: hippo: I don't care, I just want to prove it can match correctly compared to, say, ILIKE / UPPER / LOWER in postgres :)
[LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ▀ 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 :)
