in thread Lost in encoding in Twig

Thank you,
1- are you trying to tell me that utf8 is a "new" feature ? in 2014 ? sorry, in 2015 ;) .

2- do you want to tell that for each operation in perl, and particularly for IO, I MUST specify utf8?
Is there today another coding than utf8?

3- Is not it possible to specify that all is utf8 (unless exceptions) at computer level ? or at least at perl level, or at least at script level ?

    1. No, quite the opposite in fact.
    2. No, you can do so more generally (see point 3). Yes, there are many other encodings today than utf8. Thank your lucky stars you are not forced to deal with MSWin32 encodings. :) There are also a plethora of data available from the past half century much of which utilises encodings other than utf8.
    3. use open qw(:utf8); or export PERL_UNICODE=S for example
