in reply to Encode: unable to change encoding of strings

This liner should work. But since I seat on a console terminal, I prefer avoiding changing fonts and consolechars to visually verify.

The -COE sets for utf8 output, and binmode sets the STDIN for latin1.

perl -COE -npe 'BEGIN{binmode q(:encoding(latin1))} ' < file

    Nice to know :^).

    However, I'm not getting data from a filehandle, but from an XML::Simple object. It's been my mistake not reflecting it clearly at the first attempt. I've updated the OP in the hope that it's better stated now.
