Aha, thanks.

I went and took a second look at the JSON manpage too.. apparently the utf8 option in JSON already takes the liberty of encoding the output (removing the UTF-8 flag in Perl, making it render as garbage), which is good if you're using to send/receive data over a network socket. Without the utf8 option, JSON still "supports" UTF-8, it just doesn't automatically do the string encoding/decoding.

I find it a little bit weird that, if you don't use utf8;, and open a filehandle in UTF-8 mode, that wide characters printed to it are mangled; is this because Perl doesn't expect Unicode to be written to the filehandle (because the script printing it didn't use utf8), so it double-encodes it?

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
