This could work

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw' dd '; use HTML::Entities qw' encode_entities decode_entities '; use Encode qw' encode decode '; use Encode::Detective qw' detect '; my $odata = my $str = '’'; decode_entities($str); dd $str; dd encode_entities($str); my $encoding = detect($str); dd $encoding; $str = decode( 'UTF-8', $str ); dd $str; dd encode_entities($str); __END__ "\xE2\x80\x99" "’" "UTF-8" "\x{2019}" "’"
