It's probably worth mentioning that you can use the open pragma to do
this automatically.

use open ':utf8';

You can also use the -C switch to perl or the PERL_UNICODE environment
variable to set the default PerlIO layer to UTF-8 for handles. A value
of 31 should cause all handles to be flagged, including the three
standard handles.

See perldoc open and man perlrun for more details about these.
