in thread Is there some universal Unicode+UTF8 switch?

woops... The most recent Strawberry Perl doesn't have it. use utf8 - OK, use utf8::all - gives "Can't locate utf8/all.pm in @INC (you may need to install the utf8::all module)". The same with all my current providers (500 Internal Server Error)

So the idea behind utf8::all looks attractive but either it was never properly implemented or had to be removed from all default sets.

    You are right, Strawberry Perl doesn't include that module: it's not part of core Perl, nor of Strawberry's default list of non-core modules that it includes when you first install Strawberry Perl; however, it is available via CPAN. Fortunately, Strawberry does include a variety of CPAN clients, including cpan and cpanm (I personally prefer cpanm). You can use one of those tools to install utf8::all using cpanm utf8:all (or appropriate syntax for your client).

    You'll find that most modules are available this way, rather than pre-bundled with your perl distribution, so keep this in mind as you hear about other modules that you might want to use in this or future projects.
