With development versions of Perl you can now use the Encode module like so:
use Encode qw(encode decode); my $iso_data=encode('iso-8859-1',decode('UTF-8',$utf8_data));
The list of encodings that Encode currently supports is given by Encode::encodings():
koi8-r dingbats iso-8859-10 iso-8859-13 cp37 iso-8859-9 iso-8859-6 iso-8859-1 cp1047 iso-8859-4 Internal iso-8859-2 symbol iso-8859-3 US-ascii iso-8859-8 iso-8859-14 UCS-2 iso-8859-5 UTF-8 iso-8859-7 iso-8859-15 cp1250 iso-8859-16 posix-bc
That list is expandable via inp0ut text file found in the ext/Encode/Encode directory in the perl source tar ball distribution.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
