Show the relevant code.

Make sure your DBD is configured to use Unicode. This is usually done during DBI->connect(), using an attribute value.DBD::Pg needs pg_enable_utf8 => 1, DBD::mysql needs mysql_enable_utf8 => 1, DBD::SQLite needs sqlite_unicode => 1 (but that breaks BLOBs), . Some DBDs can handle Unicode automatically, like DBD::Oracle (but you have to set either $ENV{'NLS_LANG'} or $ENV{'NLS_NCHAR'} to AL32UTF8, before loading Oracle DLLs, i.e. in a BEGIN block as early in your script as possible). DBD::ODBC handles Unicode automatically if it was compiled with Unicode support (default on Windows).


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
