[FIXED] Wide character in print warning on Windows
#4
Someone at the BBC has been using Microsoft Word with smart quotes turned on again. The presence of a curly quote in the console output generates a warning thanks to a couple of problems/limitations in Perl on Windows, so users on other platforms won't see it. A solution would entail either some messy workaround code or suppressing the warning altogether. This problem will likely never go away, so I'll probably implement the latter for the next release, though it isn't a great idea. At any rate, the warning is harmless and can be ignored.
