  • You can use <li> to make bullets, they look much nicer than asterisks (see this post for an example).

  • use UTF;

    You probably mean

    use utf8;

  • Note that in MySQL, you can configure the encoding used for:
    • storing the data
    • sending the data
    • getting the data
    plus various defaults in case any of the specific ones wasn't specified.

  • Note that :utf8 and :encoding(UTF-8) layers aren't identical. The latter is more strict and does more checks.

  • this can fail if the $filename variable is not also in UTF8

    The encoding of the contents is in no way related to the encoding of the filename. Moreover, at least in a web app, the filename on your system should be controlled by you, not a user input, so you should always know what encoding the filename uses.

    ($q=q:Sq=~/;[c](.)(.)/;chr(-||-|5+lengthSq)`"S|oS2"`map{chr |+ord }map{substrSq`S_+|`|}3E|-|`7**2-3:)=~y+S|`+$1,++print+eval$q,q,a,
