This is a bug report for perl from dakkar@thenautilus.net,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.17.2.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

This is essentially a duplicate of bug #33832.

When using formats with character strings containing characters outside of ASCII, formline cuts the string at the wrong place, resulting in weird output.

The following test shows the issue:

#!/usr/bin/env perl
use Test::More;
use strict;
use warnings;
use utf8;
use feature 'unicode_strings';

sub check_format_lines {
    my ($format,$count) = @_;
    my $output='';
    open my $fh,'>:utf8',\$output;
    my $oldfh=select $fh;
    $~=$format;
    write;
    select $oldfh;
    close $fh;
    my $lines_count = () = $output =~ m{^}mg;
    is($lines_count,$count)
        or note $output;
}

my $test;
format TEST =
{^<<<<<<}~~
$test
.

$test ='TEST[ààèèììòòùù123456789]';
check_format_lines('TEST',4);

$test ='TEST[ààèèììòòùù123456789ß]';
check_format_lines('TEST',4);

$test ='TEST[à]';
check_format_lines('TEST',1);

$test ='[à]';
check_format_lines('TEST',1);

$test ='[a]';
check_format_lines('TEST',1);

$test ='TEST[a]';
check_format_lines('TEST',1);

done_testing();
