in reply to single quote munged by perldoc?


Current LANG is "en_US.UTF-8". When I export LANG=C, the quotes display properly. Very odd.

Thank you.

    quoth perldoc perlpod, qv:

    "=encoding *encodingname*"
    This command is used for declaring the encoding of a document. Most users won't need this; but if your encoding isn't US-ASCII or Latin-1, then put a "=encoding *encodingname*" command early in the document so that pod formatters will know how to decode the document. For *encodingname*, use a name recognized by the Encode::Supported module. Examples:
    • =encoding utf8
    • =encoding koi8-r
    • =encoding ShiftJIS
