What is your beef? The fact that I want perl to process unicode as well as any other console text program? Gosh, how evil I am...
What are you going on about? I've never said anything to you about Unicode. (I even just now deleted a response to your final paragraph.)
Demanding that the perl remain Anglo-centric and default to the English languages' 8-bit charset LATIN-1 (or more specifically ISO-8859-1), is incredibly selfish and short-sighted.... So how are you going to help that? Tell me to completely change the way I program? To program like some mindless drone? My time is too limited.
More strawmen. I'm sorry I bothered. I don't believe you're responding in good faith, and I'm done here.
