in thread Converting Unicode

When something is compatible with a standard, it means it follows the standard.

When something supports a standard, it means it follows the standard.

They do indeed mean the same thing. Perhaps you should say what you mean instead of repeatedly insisting these two things don't mean the same thing?


It does not, however, qualify as being fully "compatible"--as the code must be specially adapted to use UTF8.

Nonsense.

My TV is fully compatible with multiple input protocols. But I still have to tell it which one to use.

I have a device that's fully compatible with both the North American and European power grids, but a switch needs to be placed in the correct position before it's powered.

To be fully compatible with Unicode does not require handles to provided decoded text by default, and it doesn't require handles to encode text by default. It doesn't require decoding or encoding at all, much less by default.


Does Perl support Unicode? In a sense yes. It allows Unicode to be used

Supporting Unicode means a lot more than that.
