This is only an encoding output layer / character encoding mismatch. It should be solved with proper layers, not hacks.

moo@cow[6]~>perl -le 'print "\x{263A}"'
Wide character in print at -e line 1.
moo@cow[7]~>perl -CSD -le 'print "\x{263A}"'
# OR
moo@cow[8]~>perl -MEncode -le 'print encode_utf8("\x{263A}")'
# OR
moo@caow[9]~>perl -le 'binmode STDOUT, ":utf8"; print "\x{263A}"'
# OR
moo@cow[10]~>perl -Mopen=:std,":encoding(UTF-8)" -le 'print "\x{263A}"'

This is in a UTF-8 aware terminal. These things RFC:MUST line up at every level to be correct: input, processing, output. There are no shortcuts and there is no need for hacks or special functions if itís done properly.

Unicode and character encoding issues are difficult at first and messy but they must be understood or else itís generally an accident or luck when things appear to work. Related readingĖ
