$Revision: 1.93 $ $Date: 2003/04/24 17:43:16 $
! t/enc_eucjp.t
   added "no warnings 'pack'" in for loop to keep bleedperl from
   complaining "Character in 'C' format wrapped in pack".
! Makefile.PL
   More elegant perl core detection inspired by Ilya Zakharevich
   (but further elaborated for general cases).
! lib/Encode/ lib/Encode/PerlIO.pod
   POD fixes.
! t/euc-jp.ucm
   like cp9??, \x80-\x9F (control + 0x80) are zapped so they
   are less likely to be confused w/ ISO-8859-*
! t/CJKT.t
   RT tests added (vendor encodings are exemplified)
   -- that successfully found a flaw on iso-2022-kr before the patch.
! lib/Encode/ lib/Encode/KR/
   decode("ISO-2022-KR") has been buggy but no one ever sited
   that since no one seems to be using it.  Bugs discovered by

! lib/Encode/CN/ t/perlio.t
   HZ is now perlio_ok, thanks to SADAHIRO-san. perlio.t modified
   so it adds test for HZ.

   Now guesses UTF-(16|32)(BE|LE) when the string contains \x00.
   So long as the string contains \x{00}-\x{ff} it does not fail.
   See perldoc for details.

* The one uploaded to CPAN gets AUTHORS file mangled.  I seem to have 
accidentally hit the upload button.  Pumpkings, please use the one at 
my site or the patch instead.
