in reply to [Already reported Perl Bug] Confusion over utf8 and in-memory filehandles

What do you mean, how do they leak through?

byte is read as a9 char is read as c2a9 Strings are: equal

\xa0 is U+00A9 is ord 169, c2a9 is ord 169 utf8-encoded, after you decode it, it is chr 169

    It is the same string with the utf8 flag flipped up. As such I would expect the same bytes to be available when reading it as a "filehandle". Yet the utf8-ness (which is claimed to be an internal impl. detail all ovetr the docs) is "visible" in this case.

    I am not sure I understand why (nor can find any relevant perldoc)

        Indeed, so a bug. I am updating the node and poking folks at p5p.
