P is for Practical

good and weird catch.

I can reproduce that with -CO on windows

C:\tmp>perl -CO -de0


  DB<1> p "\x{263A}"
Wide character in print at (eval 15)c:/nonBKU/strawberry-perl- line 2.

  DB<2> print "\x{263A}"
  DB<3> q

I know that p is a hardcoded command and the debugger is fiddling with IO to ensure that debugged program and interactions don't mess with each other.

Still surprising, hope I find time to look into this.

> I don't use the debugger

pity, it's pretty close to a REPL, and both python and ruby come with easy REPLs

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
