Try this:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use XML::Twig; use Encode qw( decode ); my $twig=XML::Twig->new(pretty_print => 'indented'); $twig->parse( '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><myxml/>'); my $root= $twig->root; $root->set_att( 'fille' => decode('UTF-8', 'clémence') ); open(PF, ">", "out.xml") or die "can't open file $!\n"; $twig->print(\*PF);

    Thank you all for your help.
    My conclusions are:
    - utf8 is not so generalized that I did hope, certainly for 2 reasons, the weight of the past and all lines of code soon written. And certainly too because it is more a problem for non speaking english people.
    - there is not default utf8 at global perl level (and it could be dangerous)
    - an excellent default at scope level, and then at script level is:
    use utf8::all
