Text::WrapAsUtf8 - temporarily wraps output to stdout as the UTF-8 binmode.


version 0.0.2


    use Text::WrapAsUtf8 qw/ print_utf8 wrap_as_utf8 /;

    print_utf8("Hello\n", "World\n");

    wrap_as_utf8(sub {
        print("string containing unicode\n");


This module implements two functions that proved of utility in my Website Meta Language ( sites and which I decided to extract into a common CPAN distribution. They temporarily wrap output to STDOUT in the UTF-8 encoding layer.



wrap_as_utf8(sub { print ... });

Sets the STDOUT binmode to UTF-8, calls the subroutine that is passed as an argument, and sets binmode to raw.

Prints @strings while inside wrap_as_utf8().
