e.g. look at https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=83126 and be dismayed Path::Slurp::Tiny and Path::Tiny are both excellent alternatives.

And since the current version of Perl::Dist::Strawberry is not using any encoding settings in perl code other than :raw, (I just checked with a grep) #83126 is of no consequence to us. If there are any other bugs that ARE, make a case as to why we're hitting them.

This is also a cleanup/modernisation pass. File::Slurp is old code with scary corners because of its ancient origins and subsequent adoption. While I'm grateful to Uri for continuing to maintain it at all, it's time to let it die the quiet death of old age that it's earned.

The fact is that we hadn't any trouble or negative experience with read_file, write_file, append_file from File::Slurp On the other hand it is good to know about alternatives but at least in short term we will stay with File::Slurp -- kmx

Would you be willing to trial a patch?
