Subject: PPI 0.906 chokes on embedded POD with umlauts
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 668b
The PPI tokenizer chokes on Perl modules containing umlauts in their embedded POD documentation. Example: wget http://search.cpan.org/src/MSCHILLI/Log-Log4perl-0.51/lib/Log/Log4perl.pm #!/usr/bin/perl use PPI::Document; my $d = PPI::Document->load("Log4perl.pm"); $d or print PPI::Tokenizer::errstr(), "\n"; results "Source code contains unsupported characters (first one encountered was '�')" because of the line Ceki Gülcü, "Short introduction to log4j", somewhere in the POD part. Would be great if Latin-1 chars would be acceptable as well, perl allows them in strings, regexes and POD. Anyway, thanks for this great module!

PPI is about 80-90% capable of handling all of latin1. But in a few places it isn't capable. The errors from those places were drowning out all other legitimate errors, so I've disabled any support for full latin-1 manually at this time. If you would like to help, I would really appreciate some unit tests specifically testing where latin-1 both _is_ and _isn't_ allowed, so that I can clean up the various corners where there are problems and be sure that they are working sufficiently well.
