Subject: XBase broken with 'use open ":std" => ":utf8"'
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 567b
XBase/ tries to open DBF files as binary (binmode($fh)), which is not sufficient when 'use open ":std" => ":utf8"' is set in the surrounding environment. I suggest to replace "binmode($fh)" with more explicit "binmode($fh, ':bytes')". Patch attached. Also, I am not sure about the "unless $external_fh" suffix to the above bindmode() call. I think DBF files are defined as binary, so it is perfectly legal for XBase to switch also the pre-existing filehandle to the binary mode. So my other suggestion is to remove the "unless $external_fh" clause altogether.
