NAME

Test2::Plugin::UTF8 - Test2 plugin that enables utf8.

DESCRIPTION

When used, this plugin will turn on the utf8 pragma, set STDERR and STDOUT to use utf8, and update the Test2 output formatter to use utf8.

SYNOPSIS

    use Test2::Plugin::UTF8;

This is the same as

    use utf8;
    BEGIN {
        require Test2::Tools::Encoding;
        Test2::Tools::Encoding::set_encoding('utf8');
        binmode(STDERR, ':utf8');
        binmode(STDOUT, ':utf8');
    }

NOTES

This module sets output handles to have the ':utf8' output layer. Some might prefer ':encoding(utf-8)' which is more strict about verifying characters. There is a debate about wether or not encoding to utf8 from perl internals can ever fail, so it may not matter. This was also chosen because the alternative causes threads to segfault, see perlbug 3193.
