in thread chop() and chomp()

Be careful with variables named $a and $b, they are special when used in conjunction with sort.

For example:

sort { $b cmp $a } @foo;
gives you an reverse alphabetical (ASCIIbetical really) sort on @foo.

[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"
