Subject: .ppd should be encoded in utf-8
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 350b
"Build ppd" create the PPD file using the local encoding instead of forcing UTF-8 (this is XML). If the author name contains non-ascii characters (such as myself, Olivie Mengué), the generated PPD can not be parsed by XML parsers and so by ActiveState::PPM::ParsePPD. Fix: insert the following line in line 116: $fh->binmode(':utf8');
Thanks, patched in trunk (with "if $fh->can('binmode')" in case of older perls).
