Subject: Encode choses BE when LE would be appropriate
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 265b
In Encode::Unicode, "When BE or LE is omitted during encode(), it returns a BE-encoded string with BOM prepended.". As far as I can tell, RFC 2781 does not mandate this. Surely, in the absence of a BOM the better choice would be to use the endianness of the system.
