French characters and Perl

Does Perl handle foreign characters (such as French characters)? I am
running Perl 5.8 on Solaris 8 and lib/HTML/Entities.pm causes a segmentation
fault when I use French characters (such as "o chapeau") in my strings. Is
there a way to remedy this?

Perl 5.8 is fully Unicode compatible.
How is your text encoded?

You may want to read the other thread that is going on right now, titled "
decode_entities possible bug"

For example, one string contains the French word "imp\364t" (i.e. impot). I
have downloaded/installed the latest version of HTML/Entities.pm and it
still coredumps.
