Ah,
The pragma is a per script, not a per block lexical. Only the last use encoding or no encoding matters, and it affects the whole script.
Really should say something like
The pragma is not block-scoped like lexicals and strict. Rather, any use/no encoding statement has an immediate effect starting on the next statement in the file. It does not "pop" at the end of the block or current module, but continues on until another use or no encoding statement is encountered.

FWIW, I don't think I'm "interpreting" the sentence "only the last one matters and affects the whole script" in an odd way; I think it is written incorrectly and says the wrong thing.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
