I have not used XML::Simple
, but shouldn't it pay attention to the encoding specified in the XML declaration? For German, you'd want the Latin-2 alphabet:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-2">
I gather that XML::Simple can ride on top of XML::Parser. From the XML::Parser docs:
Expat has built-in encodings for: UTF-8, ISO-8859-1,
UTF-16, and US-ASCII. Encodings are set either through
the XML declaration encoding attribute or through the
ProtocolEncoding option to XML::Parser or
For encodings other than the built-ins, expat calls
the function load_encoding in the Expat package with
the encoding name. This function looks for a file in
the path list @XML::Parser::Expat::Encoding_Path,
that matches the lower-cased name with a '.enc'
extension. The first one it finds, it loads.
