in thread App::Cmd::Command and abstract encoding


you're completely right. I do use =encoding and I get the right output of perldoc MyPackage. But the method abstract of App::Cmd::Command doesn't respect it when scanning for an abstract message for showing as help text. That's why I wrote earlier that this method could scan for a pod line =encoding and try to respect the given encoding. Have a look at the source code.

Best regards

    I asked rjbs on IRC and he said his preferred route was to just interpret all abstracts extracted from the source as being UTF-8, and forget about scanning for the encoding.

    I've offered to provide him with a patch, but if anyone beats me to it, that's just fine by me.

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

      I'm not really happy with that "solution", because if a perl source is not declared beeing utf8-encoded it is latin1-encoded by default. A German umlaut in an ABSTRACT would be decoded wrong.

      My proposal from above:
