in reply to Unicode in Perl

If your using any programming that involves other languages, Unicode is the future. If you don't learn it, or of it, you could make a mistake such as:... thinking that each character, is one byte, which is isn't. By assumming each character is one byte, rather than using a unicode character library you make that code non-portable. Unicode characters can be upto 6 bytes (IIRC).
