19:40 idiosyncrat https://github.com/jeffreykegler/Marpa--R3/blob/master/cpan/pod/Changes.pod#marpa-strings-must-be-utf-8
19:40 idiosyncrat I've been keeping the Marpa::R3 docs up to date as I make changes.
19:42 idiosyncrat This latest set of changes reflect the fact that Marpa::R3 requires all strings passed to it to be UTF-8.  In theory, this is not exactly Perl's default -- Perl's "utf8" allows additional character not in Unicode's UTF-8.
19:43 idiosyncrat In practice, you'll usually be able to pass Perl strings into and out of Marpa::R3 as is.  This was, for example, the case with the Marpa::R3 test suite -- no changes were needed.
19:46 idiosyncrat I'm not 100% comfortable with the convoluted lingo of Perl's handling of Unicode.  If anyone who understands a bit of these matters, cares to read my new language over, I'd appreciate it.
