[perl #31923] use encoding "utf8" causes segfault
Message ID:

since I am facing this bug again within just a few weeks I took a closer 
look at encoding.xs and PerlIOEncode_getarg(). Unfortunately I don't 
understand much here, the macros are not really well documented and it 
looks like I'm missing some background knowledge.

I'd be very happy if someone with a more in-depth knowledge could take 
some time for looking at the code and this long standing bug (reported 
in 2004). Sometimes threads and PerlIO::encoding are just useful...

Thank you, best regards,
