Thanks for both answeres, yes the problem is vague, and vague to describe...
We have as string and have the internal utf8 flag switched to on:
# my example may be any string from a database /user input etc. my $example = "just a string that i nd to be utf8 encoded, but can't + see it in the chars, so guess::encode won't work"; Encode::_utf8_on($example); # ... use open ':utf8'; use open ':std'; #... my $cgi = new CGI; print $cgi->header( -type => 'text/html', -expires => '-1d', -cookie => [$cookie], -charset => 'UTF-8', ) print $example;
Now the first time it's called using mod::perl regestry it prints:
just a string that i nd to be utf8 encoded, but can't see it in the +chars, so guess::encode won't work
but the second time:
just a string that i nééd to be utf8 encoded, but can't see it in th +e chars, so guess::encode won't work
This is weird, and i have no controll over how mod perl internally stores it's values.
