Has something changed with package, lib, eval, or qq~?

I'm not certain, but there may have been small changes to how eval handles Unicode, but evalbytes was introduced in 5.16, so before the 5.18 that you're migrating away from. Other than that, based on this little piece of code, I don't see anything that might be different between the two versions. And whether something has changed with Text::Unaccent::PurePerl, you'd have to check what version you have installed in both environments (perl -MText::Unaccent::PurePerl -le 'print $Text::Unaccent::PurePerl::VERSION').

If you think you're having trouble with eval, then it's best if you built its argument first, stored it in a variable, used Data::Dumper or Data::Dump to show it, and also check eval for errors using the pattern eval "...; 1" or die "eval failed: $@" (see Bug in eval in pre-5.14). (Update before posting: I see haj made a similar point.)

However, I would strongly recommend against using eval in the first place, building Perl code from strings and trying to run it can be quite brittle, and in many cases even a major security risk. If you were to show more context (SSCCE), we could most likely suggest an alternative without eval (Update: Yep!).

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
