PerlIO::encoding(3)    Perl Programmers	Reference Guide	   PerlIO::encoding(3)

NAME
       PerlIO::encoding	- encoding layer

SYNOPSIS
	 use PerlIO::encoding;

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

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

DESCRIPTION
       This PerlIO layer opens a filehandle with a transparent encoding
       filter.

       On input, it converts the bytes expected	to be in the specified
       character set and encoding to Perl string data (Unicode and Perl's
       internal	Unicode	encoding, UTF-8).  On output, it converts Perl string
       data into the specified character set and encoding.

       When the	layer is pushed, the current value of
       $PerlIO::encoding::fallback is saved and	used as	the CHECK argument
       when calling the	Encode methods encode()	and decode().
