  • Grinnz commented on Migrating from DBD::mysql to DBD::MariaDB

    Hi dami,

    You are correct that they cannot guess the intended encoding of a string, but the issue here is that DBD::mysql attempts to (intentionally or not) based on the internal storage of the string. The correct behavior is to use the visible Perl value of the string, and require the user to specify if it is instead a byte string that should not be encoded.
