Until the bug is fixed, you might want to consider a small change in how you use the "md5_hex" function. There are a variety of ways to do this, depending on your preference, but they would all boil down to something like:
my $md5 = md5_hex( encode( 'utf8', $string ));
(update: the right function to use here is "encode", not "decode" as originally posted -- sorry for the confusion)

That will pass a copy of the original string to md5_hex, and the copy will have the utf8 flag already turned off.

(update: probably the best way to do this is to write your own "wrapper" module for Digest::MD5 -- the functions in "" would check the string being passed in, and only de encode() if the utf8 flag is on. Then you just need to change the module name in the scripts that run md5 on ut8 strings.)

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.
