in thread how to output file in Unicode

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: $!";

        when i open the generated csv output file in excel, and when i click "save as" i see the file recognized as a *.csv file.

        Any other i can use to check the file being open on which format or encoding??
