Tk characters econdings on Wineby IB2017 (Sexton)

IB2017 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a very special problem, but maybe you can shed some light on the things I can work on to solve it.
I am in need to run a perl/tk application on Wine for macOs (the why is a long story. It actually works fine, exept for one thing which is quite strange and is someway related to Tk:
every Perl/Tk application compiled in exe I try to run in Wine on a macOS does not accept as input (in wigets Entry or Text, for example) from the keyboard fonts/languages like Russian, Arabic etc. and produces simple ?????? for any key stroke. I tried many perl/tk apps (.exe) from myself and from third parties. I thought it had to do with Wine, but here are a couple of strange things:
One possible solution would be to compile directly in macOS or switch to Perl/Wx. But this would mean a lot of work... and someway I find this behavior quite strange and would like to understand it, and possible solve it.
I am working on a macOS HighSierra in Italian. Any suggestion what I could try/consider is appreciated.
