I'm checking the overhead of supporting unicode in my Perl project, as I managed to see till now, without using any unicode module (utf8), Perl just "gives what she gets", for example when I used opendir to get dirs list under a given directory and I have there dirs opened in korean or german language (in utf8), perl receives it and displays it properly.
The problem starts when I try to manipulate the directory with a regular expression. does it mean I'll have to change all my regexps (endless regexps) to support unicode (using IsAlnum and '-' for \w for example), the regexps will be much complicated (long), and won't have all the power of old ones?
