in thread accented characters are garbled

Yes, it was the terminal setting. Changing vt100 to xterm shows characters fine. Now, how do I replace accented characters with ascii? E.g. to o. I tried the following, but it did not work:
$city = "Sprngfld"; use utf8; utf8::upgrade($city); utf8::encode($city); print $city;

    So if you got the display working, why do you now want to strip the diacritics?

    Anyway, Text::Unidecode. And while I'm at it, here's the boilerplate code for getting Perl reasonably UTF-8:

    use utf8; # upgrades your strings my $city = "Sprngfld"; binmode(STDOUT, ":encoding(utf-8)"); print $city, "\n"; # use decode_utf8() when reading from e.g. a file # alternatively, see the binmode() call above use Encode 'decode_utf8'; my $input_raw = <STDIN>; my $input = decode_utf8($input_raw); print $input, "\n";
