I have looked at that post but it is not making sense to me to be honest. For example, is says from with a Perl script just "use utf8" then $dbh->do('INSERT INTO test_db.test VALUES(?)', $utf8_string);
in reply to Re: DBI inserting accents
in thread DBI inserting accents
However, if I do this I get this error:
DBI::db=HASH(0x9eecc70)->do(...): attribute parameter 'Séan' is not a hash ref at insert.pl line 15
Also, I don't have any problem displaying the text, only inserting.
I have tried "binmode...." also but I can't get anything to work.
