in reply to Unable to retreive unicode characters in perl 5.10.x

The characters are displaying as diamonds because your display does not know to expect UTF characters. Whenever a binary sequence is encountered which cannot be translated by the current display code-page to some appropriate graphic, a placeholder of this sort is generated ... by the display, not by the Perl code.
