This spot of code extends the Perl POSIX module functions to take and return Perl wide-char strings instead of locale charset bytes. The replacement strftime is particularly handy. It accepts wide chars in the format string, and converts locale day/month names to wide chars for the return.

The sig files are Gnu PG ascii armoured signatures generated from my key. There's a SIGNATURE file inside the .tar.gz for cpansign too. Older sources can be found at backpan.

See I18N-Langinfo-Wide for a similar treatment of the langinfo() function.
