Hi! Same results here (Perl 5.8.8 on Slackware linux 12.0).
perl -w Eval buggy code ERR = Unrecognized character \xE9 at (eval 1) line 1. DONE Eval good code Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at + line 15. string is : DONE
Since the file was encoded in ISO-8859, I converted it to utf-8, but with similar results. Then I added "use utf8;" as first line - and the script worked:
Eval buggy code DONE Eval good code string is : new eval done DONE
So, if anyone wants to use non-ascii characters for variable names, you should save the script as utf8 text file and include "use utf8;" Have a nice day!
