Subject: Unable to use non-ascii letters in non-binary mode
The restriction of Text::CSV that only ASCII 7-bit characters are allowed in the in and output har unfortunately been implemented in this module as well. There is of course the workaround to use binary, but it is a not-so-easy task to explain to the users that they must use binary mode just because they use the perfectly normal letters of our alphabeth. Could the restriction be lifted, so that all the non-control characters of ISO-8859-x are permitted? There is a bug-report on this matter for Text::CSV: http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=149. There has been a discussion about this on Use.perl.org recently: http://use.perl.org/~barbie/journal/8593
