in thread I apologize for yesterday's downtime

Like LanX I too enjoyed posting blinking text into the CB. But unlike LanX I didn't know when to stop.

So I'd also like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone I might have upset, as a result of my actions in the CB yesterday.

Best wishes, and thanks, ambrus, for your efforts to improve the PerlMonks system. Even if things didn't work out, as planned.


#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
use Perl::Always or die;
my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
print $perl_version;

    O dude, relax! =)

    Don't take this mixture of IT kindergarten and after-work-party here too serious. ;-)

    Just be careful to always deeply respect your mother!

      Thank you for your thoughtful reply LanX,
      and your word of caution. :)


      #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw

      print $perl_version;

[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
[LanX]: I think it's a flag problem ... I'll produce a reprodocable example for SOPW
[Corion]: "flag problem" to me sounds like "contains UTF-8 bytes but was never properly decoded to an UTF-8 string"
[LanX]: not my code ...
