http://search.cpan.org/~rgarcia/perl-5.9.5/pod/perlunitut.pod (not
in perl 5.8 yet)



Juerd's unicode resources (http://juerd.nl/site.plp/perluniadvice)

Not my field of expertise, unfortunately.

Look for encoding support, that should be enough.

However, I don't reccomend putting hebrew inline in perl files - if
you are looking to localize Locale::Maketext provides a better
framework, and .po files with the utf8 header will be easily loaded
using Locale::Maketext::Simple or Locale::Maketext::Lexicon.

If you are looking to process hebrew data, then perlunicode should
be enough, without needing to put hebrew in the files themselves

If you still need hebrew in the source, save the file as utf8, and
then mark it at the top with:

	use utf8;

and things like hebrew inside regexes will work as long as the
strings they are applied against are unicode (read the docs I
