in reply to Re^7: how to output file in Unicode
in thread how to output file in Unicode

result is negative, i still see the givenname is not converted to Unicode UTF8, Example : Björn

i edit the script as below, but it doesn't help

open (OUTPUT, ">:encoding(UTF-8)",$outputfile) or die "Cannot open filename for input: $!";

how about using perl module (utf8::all) does it help?

yeah this is givenname :)

    One question. What do you use when you said "Björn"? I mean Browser? or Editor?

    Back to previous.

    open (OUTPUT, ">",$outputfile) or die "Cannot open filename for input: + $!";
    And Open your output file with Browser.What do you see when you change "Character Encoding" of Browser? Can you change it to UTF-8?

      this "Björn" appear only if i open the csv output file using microsoft excel

      using notepad or Editplus (editor) it looks good.

        What encoding does the "microsoft excel" program think the file is in?

        i changed it once, but it doesn't work out, i still seeing the character as "Björn".

        i don't know why? but how to ensure the output was delivered in UTF-8 encoded? is there any way i can prove?

        why the string still displayed as "Björn" even though i set the output to encoding(UTF-8), as below line

        open (OUTPUT, ">:encoding(UTF-8)",$outputfile) or die "Cannot open filename for input: $!";
