=head1 NAME

Test2::Plugin::UTF8 - Test2 plugin to test with utf8.


When used, this plugin will make tests work with utf8. This includes
turning on the utf8 pragma and updating the Test2 output formatter to
use utf8.


    use Test2::Plugin::UTF8;

This is similar to:

    use utf8;
    BEGIN {
        require Test2::Tools::Encoding;

You can also disable the utf8 import by using 'encoding_only' to only enable
utf8 encoding on the output format.

    use Test2::Plugin::UTF8 qw(encoding_only);

=head1 import options

=head2 encoding_only

Does not import utf8 in your test and only enables the encoding mode on the output.

=head1 NOTES

This module currently sets output handles to have the ':utf8' output
layer. Some might prefer ':encoding(utf-8)' which is more strict about
verifying characters.  There is a debate about whether or not encoding
to utf8 from perl internals can ever fail, so it may not matter. This
was also chosen because the alternative causes threads to segfault,
see L<perlbug 31923|>.
