in thread How to sanely handle unicode in perl?

I'm talking about locale (from use open qw(:std :locale)). encoding doesn't override locale (maybe it should? but it doesn't. They basically stack). Note that using :raw simply removes the locale layer (like removing use open ... entirely, because by default Perl ignores locales... for the most part).

    Also note that "echo \xC3\xB6" won't always work... conceptually, Perl's strings are sequences of integers; there is no guarantee about their internal representation - in particular, no guarantee that C3 and B6 are actually bytes. Try "echo \xC3\xB6\x{FFFD}" and see what happens...
