Why won't Perl convert (Latin1 | ISO-8859-1) to (UTF-8 | utf8)?

A poor workman blames his tools

    A poor workman blames his tools
    An ignorant person makes assumptions.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use perl::always;
    my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
    print $perl_version;

      Never heard of that proverb :) and FWIW, I don't see where I made any assumptions, you ask "why is perl to blame" but you don't show that it is, you simply say that it is :)

      OTOH, every time you post a quesiton/response you get a link to How do I post a question effectively? which says to show some data that demonstrates the problem, you could use  perl -MData::Dump -MFile::Slurp -e " dd scalar read_file shift, { qw/ binmode :raw / }; "  tenlinefile > tenlinefileasperl.pl

        Greetings,
        In all fairness, I must admit, I should have been more concise.
        But in my humble defense; it's easy for me to know what I mean when writing to the list, w/o fully considering the fact that others aren't – a fact that I must better consider in future posts. :P

        --chris

        #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
        use perl::always;
        my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
        print $perl_version;
