in reply to DBD::mysql incorrect string value

Is it not possible to change the table/database encoding to "utf8mb4"? Or, would that also not be enough for MySQL to deal with Unicode?

    Doh! Why didn't I think of that? Thanks, that did the trick.

      If you care about Unicode in UTF-8 to|from MySQL, I do hope that you would switch to DBD::MariaDB as choroba mentioned.

      Thanks goes to Adam H for reminding me about broken "utf8" encoding scheme of MySQL & to use "utf8mb4" instead few days ago, and all the other people through whom I found previously linked article written in 2016. Some web! 8-)
