Thank you for time and effort reading and replying to my request for comments. Hmmmm Unicode::Peek not a bad idea, it is exactly as you describe. The module meant to take
a quick peek on the encoding. Well since I am also converting into hex why not Unicode::HexPeek?
Regarding the code tags, as fellow Monk hippo said I am using the <pre></pre> tags to encode the UTF-8 data.
Again thanks for the interesting ideas, I appreciate it. BR / Thanos
