This is what happens happens when you (I mean, Dancer) use binary strings in 'Unicode context' (so to say). For example

perl -E 'my $m=q{ДДТ - Чёрно-белые танцы)}; binmode STDOUT, q{:encoding(utf-8)}; say $m'

There are plenty of ways to produce mojibake actually... Did you try something like
get '/np' => sub { return Encode::decode_utf8(`mpd | head -n1`); }
...just for testing? Anyway, this is probably a bug in Dancer.

For some reason, Dancer imports utf8 into your file

utf8->import; # line 232 of
Apparently, it expects Unicode strings from you. And `mpc|head -n1` produces bytes. The bad thing with Perl is that by default, it tries to decode binary strings from Latin-1.

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.
