Hello,
I use ActivePerl on WIN7.
I've found a useful script for converting ANSI to UTF8 (call it utf8.pl):

use File::Slurp;
use Encode;

$File_Name="c:\\dottorandi.xml";
$file_con=read_file($File_Name);

open (OUT, ">c:\\dottorandiUTF8.xml");
print OUT encode('utf8', $file_con);
close OUT;

but I'd like to use NOT fixed paths to the file to convert (like c:\\dottorandi.xml) but the STDIN and STDOUT, so I can call the script from the command line like:
perl utf8.pl<fileANSI.xml>fileUTF8.xml
I've try to use:
$File_Name=<STDIN>;
...
open (OUT, <STDOUT>);
but without luck.
Where's my error?
Thanks,
Fabiano
