It's not clear to me what point you're trying to make with the code examples.

    A fatal code point Dave! :-) Next time someone accidentally tries to decode a binary file with Encode and Perl complains about fatal code points they may find this node and save the day it took me to figure out what was wrong. Then the fix is easy.

      You mean, you read data that was not UTF-8?

      This is what was told to you here and here and here, so I must still misunderstand what your problem is, and how you solved it.

      Maybe you can explain in a bit longer text what the problem was.

        You were right as usual Corion.
        Thank you for helping to breach my thick skull!
        My problem is almost always the same: PROGRAMMER ERROR
