Use Unicode. Perl is quite good at that

$ perl -MDP -we'my@x=("",undef,"1","123","2","\xff","\x{00ff}");DPeek +for map{$_->[1]}sort{$a->[0]cmp$b->[0]}map{[$_//"\x{1ffff}",$_]}@x' PV(""\0) PV("1"\0) PV("123"\0) PV("2"\0) PV("\377"\0) PV("\377"\0) UNDEF

And chr(255) is *not* per definition an y with two dots. That is only the case in (encodings supported by perl (cp1252, cp1254, cp1258, hp-roman8, iso-8859-1, iso-8859-9, iso-8859-14, iso-8859-15, iso-8859-16, and UTF-7. If you don't specify the encoding or (lord forbids) *assume* any of the just listed, chr(255):

    $ perl -MDP -we'my@x=("",undef,"1","123","2","\xff","\x{00ff}");DPeek for map{$_->[1]}sort{$a->[0]cmp$b->[0]}map{[$_//"\x{1ffff}",$_]}@x'
    Not sure what you're trying to prove with this. Do you think U+1ffff is the biggest Unicode character?
    And chr(255) is *not* per definition an y with two dots.
    Which is exactly why I said I was *hoping* it would get replaced with something less than 255. People around here need less sensitive nerd-rage triggers.
