in reply to Net::LDAP and utf-8 issues

Just for completeness. I think I found the reason for the problem. See below.

So here is a small example of my script having problems with utf-8.

use strict; use warnings; use Net::LDAP; # binmode STDOUT, ':utf8'; # <- If this is active, output is corrupted my $ldap_host= '...myhost...'; my $ldap_port= ...myport...; my $ldap_user= '...myuser...'; my $ldap_pass= '...mypass...'; my $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( $ldap_host, port => $ldap_port, raw => qr/(?i:^jpegPhoto|;binary)/, ) or die "$@"; my $mesg = $ldap->bind( $ldap_user, password => $ldap_pass, ); if ($mesg->is_error) { die $mesg->error_text; } $mesg= $ldap->search( base => '...mybase...', filter => 'uid=...myuser...', attrs => [ qw/ cn / ] ); if ($mesg->is_error) { die $mesg->error_text; } my $result= $mesg->as_struct; while (my($id, $data)= each %$result) { print $data->{'cn'}->[0], "\n"; } $ldap->unbind;

Output is okay without the binmode STDOUT, ':utf8';:

$ ./ldap-test.pl Jrg $ ./ldap-test.pl | od -xc 0000000 f64a 6772 000a J 366 r g \n 0000005
But with that line I get:
$ ./ldap-test.pl Jörg $ ./ldap-test.pl | od -xc 0000000 c34a 72b6 0a67 J 303 266 r g \n 0000006

Assumption: The UTF-8 Conversion is okay, but my Cygwin rxvt Terminal is too dumb. It's not expecting UTF-8 but some WinDOS encodeing.

When I switch to an xterm and enable UTF-8 encoding there, output seems okay.
