Hi

I have used PDF::Reuse quite a lot but have only ever used ASCII text.
I now need to include some characters with macrons. For example the
Unicode character U+0101 (hex 101 decimal 257). I tried just using
the
Perl utf8 string "\x{101}" but that gave me two separate characters -
neither of them being the one I wanted.

Is it correct to say that PDF::Reuse does not support the use of utf8
for non-ASCII strings? Is there a workaround such as some PDF-
specific
numeric escaping?

Regards
Grant

Hi,

PDF::Reuse hasn't got any support for Unicode. That is missing.
It could be easy or difficult to add it to the module. Some basic
research is needed.
Just now I work with other things, so I can't promise anything.

It is correct to say that PDF::Reuse does not support the use of utf8
for non-ASCII strings. There might be workarounds for PDF-specific
numeric escaping, but I have not prepared anything.

Best Regards
Lars Lundberg
