in reply to Perl / FileFind or ...

First, Thanks to Anonymous Monk for an excellent and informative post.

Simple ... Yea, it should be!

Why?
Because it's a high level language (or supposed to be), And it should be smart enough to handle basic OS configuration.
All Perl has to do is ask the OS and set itself accordingly!

As is pointed out in this thread.

Now if it was a string created from user data, that would be a different story.

It's not, it's OS data ... The OS knows what it is, Perl should as well!

-Enjoy

    There is no standard way to communicate the encoding of a file system.

    Know what?

    Your comments are very confused , esp because you're [reply]ing to yourself, again

    If I assume you're talking about the console code page, perl doesn't assume you're writing a terminal program
