in thread Seeking help with Extracting files from zip

Ok, so I assume the katakana filename there is what it's supposed to look like, and the gibberish filename with nearly more than twice as many characters, most of which look like they came from the miscellanous-symbols-and-accented-characters section of an eight-bit character set, is the result of running your code?

This definitely looks like a charset translation issue. The Archive::Zip documentation indicates that setting UNICODE causes the filenames in the archive to be treated as UTF8. Perhaps they're not? Maybe they're UTF16 or UTF32 or some other Unicode encoding (or, heaven help you, some pre-Unicode Asian encoding like Shift-JIS or whatnot)? If you can figure out what fiddling needs to be done to preserve the encoding, you can pass the correct filename to extractMemberWithoutPaths and that should probably work, I think...

Unfortunately, I don't know that much about the details of the character sets involved, but maybe someone else will come along now and be able to recognize what's going on. (Even just being able to recognize which encoding is being erroneously treated as though it were some other encoding would go a long way toward figuring out the problem.) That image you provided should help.
