PerlIO::locale - PerlIO layer to use the encoding of the current locale
use PerlIO::locale; open my $filehandle, '<:locale', $filename or die $!;
This is mostly a per-filehandle version of the
open pragma, when used under the form
use open ':locale';
The encoding for the opened file will be set to the encoding corresponding to the locale currently in effect, if perl can guess it.
