in thread How to sanely handle unicode in perl?

You took the locale bit out, right? Both examples from choroba and me/tchrist work in my UTF-8 terminal.

moo@cow~>echo $LC_CTYPE
utf-8
moo@cow~>perl ~/pm-eg
I read a line, that is 1 chars long.
That line is: 
That line in ascii is: o

Update: this works the same for me as well: setenv LC_CTYPE de_DE.UTF-8

    As said elsewhere, I've not found a way to make it work in both UTF-8 and ISO8859-1 terminals. Not looking at the locale charset to see what terminal you are on does not sound like it'll work.
