  • I'm sorry to disappoint you, but Perl_is_utf8_string can't be used to check for well-formed UTF-8. Perls utf8 encoding form is superset of Unicode and ISO/IEC 10646. Perls encoding form supports codepoints up to 2**64-1 and has no problems with encoded UTF-16 surrogates or any other permanently reserved codepoints.
