Contents of a Unicode (UTF-8) text file named DriedMangos.txt:

dried mangos
mangues séchées
芒果幹
doraido mangōsu
ドライドマンゴス
ドライドマンゴス
ト"ライト"マンコ"ス

Perl script to demonstrate matching Unicode grapheme clusters using the regular expression backslash sequence \X:

#!perl use strict; use warnings; use autodie; open my $input_fh, '<:encoding(UTF-8)', 'DriedMangos.txt'; open my $output_fh, '>:encoding(UTF-8)', 'Graphemes.txt'; while (my $line = <$input_fh>) { chomp $line; while ($line =~ m/(\X)/g) { print $output_fh "[$1]"; } print $output_fh "\n"; } close $input_fh; close $output_fh;

Contents of the output text file named Graphemes.txt:

[d][r][i][e][d][ ][m][a][n][g][o][s]
[m][a][n][g][u][e][s][ ][s][é][c][h][é][e][s]
[芒][果][幹]
[d][o][r][a][i][d][o][ ][m][a][n][g][ō][s][u]
[ド][ラ][イ][ド][マ][ン][ゴ][ス]
[ド][ラ][イ][ド][マ][ン][ゴ][ス]
[ト]["][ラ][イ][ト]["][マ][ン][コ]["][ス]
