Yesterday I had an interesting discussion on irc.
A guy wanted to know why Perl script is causing problems when dealing with Pg
and unicode characters.
The discussion went sideways, I got (a bit) upset, and had to leave anyway, so
I didn't finish it. But it did bother me, as for me the reasons of the problem
seem obvious, yet the person I talked with was very adamant that I have the
whole thing wrong.
So, I figured I'll use my blog to elaborate a bit…
