Problems with Date::Manip in RedHat 8.0 Perl 5.8.0

c has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I just recently installed Date::Manip on a Redhat Linux 8.0 machine with Perl 5.8.0. I used -MCPAN to install the module. It works well enough, meaning that it does the expected math however I get a TON of errors popping out complaining about syntax in the module

Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected non-continuation byte 0x73, imme +diately after start byte 0xea) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Date +/ line 6501.

Anyone else seen this type of behavior? or know of what the source of the problem is? Thanks -c

    This is catching a lot of people using RH 8.0. It is probably caused by perl trying to honour a UTF directive in the $LANG environmental variable.

    See Malformed UTF-8 character.
