in thread How to sanely handle unicode in perl?

I do not assume unicde.
I think you misparsed that sentence

This is not
(Code that assumes Unicode) gives a fig about POSIX locales is broken.
but
Code that assumes (Unicode gives a fig about POSIX locales) is broken.
Update: perhaps I should point out that we seem to share the same native language
