I've just uploaded XML-Edifact-0.41 to PAUSE !
( after a hard fight with a Windows NT site :-)
This version is known to build and pass its regression test under Win/NT.
As a bad news : Perl 5.6 is required even under Linux !
As a good news : XML-Edifact 0.42 will do UTF right, at least for UNOC.
If you already have XML-Edifact-0.40,
and dont need other charactersets than UNOA and UNOB,
and dont want to upgrade your Perl to 5.6,
forget about XML-Edifact-0.41 - it does'nt implement anything new.
Any difference between XML-Edifact-0.40 and 0.41 is in the Makefile.PL.
If you have WinNT and ActivePerl 5.6 experience,
look at www.xml-edifact.org/pub,
fetch the ppd and blib,
build a pmm,
and send it to me and to ActiveState.
This would give us some time for more impatient to check it, and to
release 0.42 including correct UTF8 handling next week ;-)
PS : For those who dont know - XML::Edifact implements a United Nations
Electronic Data Interchange for Adminstration Commerce and Transport
message format (ISO/ANSI X12) to XML translator.
