in reply to What is the best way to install CPAN modules on Debian?

Another option is to install modules into application specific libraries.

I have systems running multiple perl applications, each with its own module requirements. While the modules installed on the system are usually adequate, sometimes newer or older or patched versions are required for a particular application. To avoid adversely impacting the system or other applications, I prefer to install such modules into an application specific library - just a few more modules among the application's own modules.

I am currently investigating options for cpan and cpanplus to have them use application specific configurations rather than the system wide or personal configurations. I don't see easy support for this out-of-the-box, so I expect I will customize cpanplus to make installation and maintenance of these modules easier.

[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
[LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
[LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
[Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
[LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
[LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
[LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
LanX hates UTF8 for causing knots in his brain and stomach
