Hy all

I'm getting crazy with mod_perl and utf-8. I already did everything that I found in the web about this and nothing works.

use Encode;
use utf8;

sub handler() {
      my $r = shift;
      $r->content_type('text/html; charset=utf-8');
      
      my $output = "<html><body>aécãcça ".time."</body></html>";
      
#      utf8::encode $output;
#      $r->print(Encode::encode('utf-8', $output));
      $r->print($output);
}


I don't know if this shall be about configuration.

PLEASE HELP, This is my first website done from 0, and I'm getting crazy.

Thanks

From the solution, I'm guessing the problem was you weren't sending proper headers before.
If you add this to your script, the errors will show up on the browser, instead of in the logs.  This can make it easier to debug:
use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';
