enumerate windows unicode filenames

mulchman has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How can I enumerate windows path\\filenames, including those in non-english languages? I can enumerate and print all the english filenames using find(\%sub, $RootDir), but the non-english filenames aren't printed. Is this a unicode handling problem?

    In my code I solve a problem like this (this is in 5.6.1 time, now use Unicode is somewhat obsolete):
    use Win32::OLE qw(in CP_UTF8); use Win32::OLE::Const; Win32::OLE->Option(CP=>CP_UTF8); use Unicode::String qw/utf8/; my $oshell = Win32::OLE->new('Shell.Application') or die "$@"; my $f = $oshell->NameSpace(Win32::GetCwd()); print "[$f]"; my $fi = $f->Items; print $fi->Count; print "\n"; for (0 .. $fi->Count-1) { my $item = $fi->Item($_); my $name = $item->Name; my $u=utf8($name); my $s = $u->hex; $s=~s/U\+00(\w\w)/my($r,$p)=((pack 'H*',$1),$&);if($r=~m(^[()\w .;\- ++!]$)){$r}else{$p}/eg; $s=~s/(U\+[\da-f][\da-f][\da-f][\da-f])/($1)/ig; my $ren=0; $ren=1 if $s=~/U\+(?!00)/; $s=~s/[ +]//g; print "$ren|$s\n"; if($ren){$item->{Name}=$s} }
