in thread How to sanely handle unicode in perl?

Please check the source. I explicitly state that the pipe that produces \xc3\xb6 is utf-8. So what you wrote does not apply to my code.

In fact choroba found out that it works as intended if I prepend ":raw" to the encoding. (Which is unintuitive to me, but kind of makes sense in retrospect)

    Maybe you misunderstand my point. If you run that code in a Latin-1 terminal you are sending UTF-8 and expecting it to act properly. It makes no sense and canít work without goofy and unrealistic hoops.
