Hello monks!

Edit: I found the solution. I needed to use '>:raw:encoding(UTF-16)' ;)

So I am building a text file that will be imported with a bulk insert into SQL Server. However, since I am using french langage characters, I need the file to be encoded in UTF-16.

Here is what I am doing (this isn't the entire code, just the relevant parts):

my $fileDest = "hostsfile_modified.txt"; die "Problème de création du fichier $fileDest" unless open(my $fd, '> +:encoding(UTF-16)', $fileDest); my $line = ""; #I build my $line... print $fd $line."\n"; close $fd;

Once this is done however, my output document looks something like this:
10.10.10.70;VL-CX-RP002;RP;CX;SRIP-R;Internet (TPIA)

I realize that the problem seems to be the new line character however I am not sure what the solution is. Thanks for your help!
