Here's a way to reverse a Unicode string using the regular expression character class \X to match Unicode extended grapheme clusters:

my $edocinU = join '', reverse $Unicode =~ m/\X/g;

Here's a demonstration using Vietnamese (tiếng Việt) words:

#!perl

use strict;
use warnings;
use utf8;

binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(UTF-8)';

my $Moonshine = "Rượu đế";
my $enihsnooM = join '', reverse $Moonshine =~ m/\X/g;

print "$Moonshine\n";
print "$enihsnooM\n";

__END__
Rượu đế
ếđ uợưR

LATIN CAPITAL LETTER R
LATIN SMALL LETTER U
COMBINING HORN
LATIN SMALL LETTER O
COMBINING HORN
COMBINING DOT BELOW
LATIN SMALL LETTER U
SPACE
LATIN SMALL LETTER D WITH STROKE
LATIN SMALL LETTER E
COMBINING CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT
COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT

[I was forced to use <pre> tags instead of <code> tags here to display the actual Vietnamese characters rather than their HTML character entities.]

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • 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! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
