I think this is a bug: perl -MEncode -E 'say Encode::decode("UTF-8", "\xEF\xBF\xBF", Encode::FB_CROAK)' utf8 "\xFFFF" does not map to Unicode at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.20.0/darwin-thread-multi-2level/Encode.pm line 175. \xFFFF is, in fact, a part of UTF-8. It is one of a family of “Noncharacters”, and, according to [Corrigendum 9](, reserved noncharacters now are allowed to appear in UTF-8 strings. Related discussions: . Thanks, David
