He bestowed his most aranciate blessing on the choice
I'd forgotten about Leon's worship of the colour orange. Thanks for reminding me. I remember now that when davorg visited Sydney.pm some years ago, he told us that Leon had decreed that he undertake a spiritual journey to the New South Wales city of Orange and granted davorg permission to bestow his most aranciate blessing on it and to further take photographs of this sacred rural town through a specially provided naranja filter.

[ELISHEVA]: Simple yes. and I did consider that. but this isn't one off . An important data source that I don't control is generating bom prefixed utf8 files and I'd rather not have to be munging files every few months.
[erix]: on teh other hand a SOPW is pretty much garanteed to get an answer from tux (and probably the module fixed)
[ELISHEVA]: plus it bugs me that something that *should* be simple, *should* work- unicode and noms aren't exactly the new kids on the block
[ELISHEVA]: well then since the obvious possible mistakes on my part have been ruled out, SOPW it is.
[ELISHEVA]: the data source, or one of them, is the OECD - they provide a *lot* of data that ought to be easily available to perl programmers.
[erix]: it might be cunning to mention the module in the title... :)
[ELISHEVA]: fancy that - a title that actually describes the problem :-)
[ELISHEVA]: but actually thanks for the reminder
[Discipulus]: DBI::CSV + utf8 = BOO?M
[erix]: in extremis we tend to forget stuff ;)
