in reply to Lowercasing umlauts in words

From perllocale:

By default, Perl ignores the current locale. The "use locale" pragma tells Perl to use the current locale for some operations: [ ... ] lc().
$ perl -le 'print lc "";' $ echo $LC_ALL de_DE $ perl -Mlocale -le 'print lc "";'

You can switch the current locale in your perl program reading locale or perllocale.

And BTW: lc is the same as "\L".
