You can't use chdir to change the current working directory to a Japanese folder name (Unicode) on Windows. It fails.

Running this trivial Perl script…


    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use utf8;
    use autodie qw( chdir );

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

    chdir 'C:/日本/';

…fails with this error message…

    Can't chdir('C:/日本/'): No such file or directory at line 8

File::Find uses chdir.

I'm running Strawberry Perl version 5.16.2.



Running this Perl script…

#!perl use strict; use warnings; use utf8; use autodie qw( chdir ); binmode STDERR, ':encoding(UTF-8)'; chdir 'C:/Doesn’t Work/';

…fails with this error message…

    Can't chdir('C:/Doesn’t Work/'): No such file or directory at line 8
