in thread Special character not being captured

One last thing, I've been trying to figure out how to add utf8 to first_alpha, which I posted earlier. I am not having any success with it. So, how should I add it to that subroutine?

No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

    It doesn't belong there. You should always decode the input, as soon as possible; and similarly encode the output immediately before sending it out. first_alpha should receive an already decoded string.

    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
