So how should I write utf8::encode and utf8::decode for 5.6.1 and 5.6.0?
I can cope if a different solution is needed on both.
I made a quick XS hack that exposes those functions in 5.6.1 as well
(basically copied from the 5.8.0 sources). I called the module "UTF8".
Hmm. Seems I only did utf8::decode actually. the XS looks like this:
MODULE = UTF8 PACKAGE = utf8 PREFIX = sv_utf8_
You can't get much shorter than that :-)
In the UTF8.pm file I made the call to bootstrap conditional on the perl
version, so 5.7 and greater just use the builtin function.
I won't make this into a CPAN module, as I plan to just switch to 5.8.0
as soon as possible.
