( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I don't use the debugger (except in exercises like this) so it's more trial and error than knowledge for me. Anyway, I found the issue actually revolves around whether p or print is used.

$ perl -C -de1
...
  DB<1> print "\x{263A}"
☺
  DB<2> p "\x{263A}"
Wide character ...
...
☺

My guesswork here was based on a long-standing alias of mine:

$ alias perlu alias perlu='perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -Mautodie=:all -Mutf8 -C -E'

For example:

$ perlu 'say for $], "\x{263A}", "\x{ 263A }"'
5.036000
☺
☺

Update (checking for false positives):

$ perl -de1
...
  DB<1> print "\x{263A}"
Wide character ...
...
☺
$ alias perle alias perle='perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -Mautodie=:all -MCarp::Always -E +'
$ perle 'say for $], "\x{263A}", "\x{ 263A }"'
5.036000
Wide character in say at -e line 1.
☺
Wide character in say at -e line 1.

Title:
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.
