$ cat /etc/debian_version; uname -a
Linux debie64 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3 x86_64 GNU/Linux

upon installing stuff that broke my|your bash env locale variables


$ echo "export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8" >> ~/.bashrc 
$ echo "export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8" >> ~/.bashrc 
$ echo "export LANG=en_US.UTF-8" >> ~/.bashrc 
$ source ~/.bashrc 

$ perl


perl should not warn and fall back to C from now on.
