    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
