length() does not count square brackets as 2 chatacters
I have a string:
$string = "Hello [Alfred], how are you?";
print length($string); // result: 28
The result supposes to be 30, because [ and ] considered as 2 characters each as both [ and ] are the extended characters in GSM format.
May I know is there any perl functions can count characters more efficiently?
Or I should create my own function personally?
