in thread utf8 && XML::Simple

Thanks for replying. In my (much more complicated real life) file, I get "Cannot decode string with wide characters at /usr/../Encode.pm line 184."

    most likely your input data is arady in utf8 and you want to convert it a second time to utf8. for example:
    use Encode; my $str = "hi"; # hi is a notmal string. $str .= chr(0x1234); # str is now a utf8 string Encode::decode_utf8($str, 1); # here you get the error.
    Propably you exchange encode and decode. Or the decode function call is not needed in your case.
