in thread how to output file in Unicode

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??

      Use the "file -> open" dialog. There you can specify the encoding for text files in Excel.

        i can only see, "file of type" when i click open in Microsoft excel
