There is considerable internationalization work going on in Perl. People like Jeffrey Friedl have been using Perl to process Japanese text for some time, so it is possible even if I haven't done it.

An alternative to consider if you don't want to figure out the appropriate hoops for Perl to jump is Ruby. It was developed in Japan so I bet its support for working with Japanese text is pretty good. I would have to investigate, but I suspect that Perl's Unicode support is further along. But Ruby has natively supported common Japanese formats for a while, but Perl isn't quite so strong there.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
