Re: unicode support and perl
Message ID:
These are your utf8-related bug reports I'm able to find from the bug db. 

ID 20000819.004		$1 etc.. not flagged as utf8
ID 20000901.097		undef . utf8 == undef
ID 20000903.001		\w in utf8-strings

The last one has been fixed (change #7028, and 5.7.0 was #7015,
so you won't find it in any released Perl.)

The undef thing you submitted a patch for but yourself called
the fix incorrect, so I didn't apply it.  (Simon said he thought
the patch would be just fine.)

The $1 etc is still unfixed as far as I know.  You did not
supply a patch as a followup to the bug report so there is
no patch in the bug db discussion .

From the p5p archives I find this:

for the $1 etc thing (plus a s/// problem).  But you say:

	"I doubt this is the correct (or even full) fix. There might
	 be a lot of similar places ;)"

So I didn't apply it.

There's another part of the s/// fix in:

In which you said:

	The small patch below (partly?) fixes s// behaviour of marking
	substitution results correctly as utf8 with respect to bug
	20000819.004. (The result is still incorrect, despite being
	flagged as utf8, so the bug still remains).

So I didn't apply it.

Maybe we have a communication barrier here.  If you say "the result
is still incorrect...the bug still remains"  I must interpret this
as "please apply this patch"?
