in thread Whether 'use utf8;' is good style

Quite the contrary. If you have literal strings you intend for Perl to deal with in the UTF-8 encoding, you'd better use that pragma.

If you're not explicit about Unicode and encodings, you're going to make a mess for other people to deal with. If you put UTF-8 in literals in your programs and don't use the utf8 pragma, you've acted irresponsibly.
