in thread LATIN1 and utf8 strings, joined, mangle the LATIN1

In the use case, the data is not really output. The joined string is inserted back into the database (as noted above, mangling the output). This application was written prior to perl's support for unicode and/or utf-8.

    So it's being output to the database instead of the screen. use open won't help you, but it still needs to be encoded.

    Sorry, I don't think I can help you because I don't know enough about how database handle encodings, what the DBD expects from you and what the DBD can do for you.
