At request time Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode 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 é (e-accute) will not actually
cause the output to be encoded as utf8.
Using Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding (part of Catalyst 5.90042, packaged
in libcatalyst-perl) 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.
Catalyst is an elegant Model-View-Controller web application framework
written in Perl.
