in reply to Case shifting on accented characters

//i does work on accented characters ...usually. When it doesn't, you can force it to using one of the following methods:

A very likely possibility is that you don't actually have "Ú" or "╔" in your string or in your code due to forgetting to decode, since you don't normally need the above.

use utf8; # Source file is encoded using UTF-8 print "Ú" =~ /╔/i ?1:0,"\n"; # 1 print "╔" =~ /Ú/i ?1:0,"\n"; # 1 print "Ú" =~ /\w/ ?1:0,"\n"; # 1 print "╔" =~ /\w/ ?1:0,"\n"; # 1

To answer your question, you could go about doing that by lowercasing non-ASCII characters using s/([^\x00-\x7F])/lc($1)/eg; with one of the above used.

use utf8; # UTF-8 code use open ':std', ':encoding(UTF-8)'; # UTF-8 terminal use 5.012; $_ = "LES MIS╔RABLES"; s/([^\x00-\x7F])/lc($1)/eg; # LES MISÚRABLES say;
