Scalar::String is about the string part of plain Perl scalars. A scalar has a
string value, which is notionally a sequence of Unicode codepoints, but may
be internally encoded in either ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8. In places, and more so
in older versions of Perl, the internal encoding shows through. To fully
understand Perl strings it is necessary to understand these implementation
This module provides functions to classify a string by encoding and to encode
a string in a desired way.
