"=encoding *encodingname*"
This command is used for declaring the encoding of a document. Most users won't need this; but if your encoding isn't US-ASCII or Latin-1, then put a "=encoding *encodingname*" command early in the document so that pod formatters will know how to decode the document. For *encodingname*, use a name recognized by the Encode::Supported module. Examples:
  • =encoding utf8
  • =encoding koi8-r
  • =encoding ShiftJIS
