in reply to Converting character encodings

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.
