Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode - Unicode aware Catalyst (old style)
# DO NOT USE THIS - Use Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding instead
# which is both more correct, and handles more cases.
use Catalyst qw[Unicode];
On request, decodes all params from UTF-8 octets into a sequence of logical
characters. On response, encodes body into UTF-8 octets.
Note that this plugin tries to autodetect if your response is encoded into
characters before trying to encode it into a byte stream. This is bad
as sometimes it can guess wrongly and cause problems.
As an example, latin1 characters such as e (e-accute) will not actually cause
the output to be encoded as utf8.
Using Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding is much more recommended, and that
also does additional things (like decoding file upload filenames and request
parameters which this plugin does not).
This plugin should be considered deprecated, but is maintained as a large number
of applications are using it already.
