in reply to international case insensitive searched with Perl

On my Linux system, I get "no match". Evidently, Perl doesn't consider them a match because they aren't a match. For example:
#!perl -sl strict; warnings; binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(utf8)'; print my $str1 = "L\311GER"; print my $str2 = "l\351ger";
That's on 5.8.8; however, on 5.14x and above, Anonymous Monk's suggestion about use feature 'unicode_strings' worked for me.

Update: fixed typo.
