    Hi all!

    This is a request for help - it seems that perl 5.8.x breaks Anomy
    in certain cases when handling 8bit data, because of the Unicode

    I would very much appreciate it if someone out there with 5.8.x and
    reasonable perl experience could let me know if:
      a) the test cases fail and
      b) if it is there is some simple way to tell perl 5.8 to revert to 5.6
         Unicode behavior?

    Any feedback would be most appreciated.
    Ron - this appears to be what is causing your problem, I don't have a
    solution at the moment, hopefully someone on the list can help?
