Subject: uri filter discards multi-byte characters
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 860b
I have a web application that produces URIs with unicode characters in them. Unfortunately, I can't get Template's built-in "uri" filter to properly escape them. My code looks like this: [% FOREACH tag = article.tags %] <a href="/tags/[% tag | uri %]">[% tag %]</a> [% END %] If "tag" happens to be "日本語", I want this to be escaped to "%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AC%E8%AA%9E". Unfortunately Template just discards the characters and produces no output. I'm using Perl 5.8.8 on Debian GNU/Linux (unstable) in the en_US.UTF8 locale. Passing through the unicode (rather, UTF8-encoded unicode) character as raw bytes works fine. BTW, the standard module does do the escaping right: $ perl -MURI -e 'print URI->new("http://foo/日本語/")->as_string;' http://foo/%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AC%E8%AA%9E/ -- Jonathan Rockway <>
