in reply to Data Dumper utf8 utf-8 unicode

My question is how do i get Data::Dumper to handle utf8 strings and not produce ISO-latin-1 encoded utf-8 characters like x{....}

It can't do that; Data::Dumper creates those \x{...} escapes unconditionally. You could instead hack Data::Dumper as already suggested by almut, or look for a replacement for Data::Dumper. As there are several, I'm convinced that at least one of them will do what you want.

[Eily]: marto you just need a longer cable :P
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, but I'm somewhat wary of installing random USB drivers downloaded from mega.nz , Google Drive or whatever, so Linux wins there due to there being no conflicts and me just having to edit one text file in the worst case, to add the USB vendor
[hippo]: Long USB cable FTW.
[Corion]: Eily: I've thought of that, but I don't like running long cables through the appartment because sooner or later I'll trip over it, pulling at least one device off its stand :)
[marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
[Corion]: marto: Heh - it seems that they plan to keep the search.cpan.org links alive for a long time. But still, I plan on moving PM to use/generate the new links
[Corion]: And I think it's better to generate links to the new world instead of keeping the older links alive by generating new versions of them ;)
[marto]: yeah, I guess it's supposed to be a permanent redirect, but better to make the move where possible
