Thanks for all your suggestions, Corion.

As my usecase is a module which reads a (kind of) CSV file, there are just 2 places, where I read a line from the file.

So I decied to do the "manual" decoding:

open my $in, '<:raw', $filename or die "Can't read $filename: $!\n"; if ($filename=~/\.gz$/) { $in= new IO::Uncompress::Gunzip $in, { AutoClose => 1 }; } # later on $_= <$in>; chomp; @headers= split /\t/, lc decode('UTF-8' => $_); # That's not really required as the header will always be # ASCII-characters… But for completeness sake… # further down I have a loop while (<$in>) { chomp; # … @line{@headers}= split /\t/, decode('UTF-8' => $_);

    I would suggest using Text::CSV_XS to read/parse the CSV. It already knows how to deal with UTF-8.

    It is capable of using a TAB as separation character:

    use Text::CSV_XS; my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ binary => 1, sep_char => "\t", auto_dia +g => 1 }); my @headers = $csv->header ($in); # Read the docs, there are options p +ossible here while (my $row = $csv->getline ($in)) { # ... }

    update: I realized later that Text::CSV_XS' csv function already supports gzip as part of the encoding attribute.

    use Text::CSV_XS qw( csv ); use PerlIO::via::gzip; my $aoa = csv (in => "test.csv.gz", encoding => ":via(gzip)");

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
