Nice. On my utf-8 terminal:

echo ╱╲ | iconv -f utf8 -t cp1252

    Now this works (prints black spade suit):

    system( "chcp 65001" ); print "\xe2\x99\xa0\n";

    It seems that the font I am using "Lucida Console" (and the other fonts offered in "Properties") just has no entries for the diagonals :-<

    A quick look into the "Character Map" tool confirms this. All this time wasted...

    Thanks for all your replies. From here I guess I need to find out which fonts have the diagonals and how can I get cmd.exe to use one of them. But this is not a Perl question.

      BTW, if you find a matching font, you need to enable it in the registry:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Consol +e\TrueTypeFont

      ...or

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Consol +e\RasterFonts

      ...a new string value, e.g. 00, 01.. where the value is your font - reboot required :-(

      Unfortunately i couldn't figure out the right one yet ;-(

      Regards, Karl

        There is "Arial Unicode MS" which has the diagonals. While your advice is good, I cannot implement it due to the lack of admin rights. :(
