ext::PerlIO::encoPerl:Programmeerxst:R:PerlIO::encoding::encoding(3p)


NAME
       PerlIO::encoding - encoding layer

SYNOPSIS
         open($f, "<:encoding(foo)", "infoo");
         open($f, ">:encoding(bar)", "outbar");

         use Encode qw(:fallbacks);
         $PerlIO::encoding::fallback = FB_PERLQQ;

DESCRIPTION
       Open a filehandle with a transparent encoding filter.

       On input, convert the bytes expected to be in the speci-
       fied character set and encoding to Perl string data (Uni-
       code and Perl's internal Unicode encoding, UTF-8).  On
       output, convert Perl string data into the specified char-
       acter set and encoding.

       When the layer is pushed the current value of $Per-
       lIO::encoding::fallback is saved and used as the check
       argument when calling the Encodings encode and decode.
