Discussion

   Paul (LeoNerd) Evans [24]asked (lib/_charnames.pm puts references in %^H)
   for a clarification about %^H which is leading to an improvement in the
   documentation on the topic.

   In new versions you may not use a bitwise operation on characters above
   0xFF, but as Graham Knop [25]raises (Behavior of bitwise ops on
   unencountered wide characters), this violates a possible optimized way to
   determine a string or number value.

   Dave Mitchell [26]shows that open with encoding(UTF-8) could mask an OS
   error, and asks what we would consider correct behavior here.
