in thread File name issue in Archive::Zip

Thank you for your comments. I have upgraded the latest version of Archive::Zip 1.30(released in 2009) through ppm on my windows machine. But no use.

As i just truncate these swedish character to "_" and also got approval for this, this is not required for me for time-being. But still i am wondering about this issue.

    Revision history for Perl extension Archive-Zip
    1.31_03 Thu 30 Jun 2011 - H.Merijn Brand
    	- Add decryption support
    1.31_02 Wed 9 Mar 2011 - Adam Kennedy
    	- More fixes by HAGGAI, which he still doesn't detail in Changes
    1.31_01 Fri  5 Mar 2010 - Adam Kennedy
    	- Various fixes by HAGGAI, which he has not yet provided details on:
    	- Experimental Unicode in file/dir names

      Archive::Zip Global Variables $Archive::Zip::UNICODE This variable governs how Unicode file and directory names are + added to or extracted from an archive. If set, file and directory na +mes are considered to be UTF-8 encoded. This is *EXPERIMENTAL AND +BUGGY (there are some edge cases on Win32)*. Please report problems. { local $Archive::Zip::UNICODE = 1; $zip->addFile('Déjà vu.txt'); }

      It looks like the version CPAN will install is 1.30. If the OP wants to install 1.31_03 will he need to download and use Perl, dmake, dmake test, dmake install? Maybe someone who knows more about cpan knows a way to get the latest by using the cpan prompt.

      Update: I found out how to install a different version of a cpan module than the one cpan defaults to.

      From the command prompt type 'cpan' and hit enter. Then from the cpan> prompt type 'install A/AD/ADAMK/Archive-Zip-1.31_03.tar.gz'.

      This should install the file located at
