Subject: Encoding of author name getting corrupted
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 576b
Hi Sawyer, The encoding of the author name field is getting munged when I get it via MetaCPAN::API. I get the name using the API: my $id = 'JWALT'; my $mcpan = MetaCPAN::API->new(); my $info = $mcpan->author($id); my $name = $info->{name}; If I make the request to MetaCPAN myself: my $uri = ''; my $tiny = HTTP::Tiny->new(); $result = $tiny->get($uri); If I put the name out of $result->{content} then I get a UTF-8 encoded version of the author's name. But I don't get a UTF-8 encoded name from MetaCPAN::API
