in reply to How to handle UTF-8 content with Win32::IE::Mechanize

Why not use the open pragma  use open qw(:std :utf8); OR
binmode like so: binmode FILEHANDLE, LAYER. i.e

open DEBUGFILE, '>', "debug.txt" or die $!; binmode DEBUGFILE, ":encoding(UTF-8)";

Using your OP, I don't have Win32::IE::Mechanize, installed so I used WWW::Mechanize, like so:
use WWW::Mechanize; ... # get the DOM document #my $doc = $mech->{agent}->Document; # comment out # get the webpage title my $title = $mech->title; # used instead ... # create a utf-8 text file open DEBUGFILE, '>', "debug.txt" or die $!; binmode DEBUGFILE,":encoding(UTF-8)"; ...
OUTPUT:
Title:야후! 코리아
Title Length:7
Title Hex Byte String:c74c120245ca44
Hope this helps

      ... And suggesting an alternative would not be wrong either.
      Moreover,Win32::IE::Mechanize is just Like "the mech" but with IE as user-agent. Period...

        But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :)

        Mechanize doesn't support javascript, while iexplore does support javascript -- pretty much the only reason folks use iexplore when they can
