Then you are probably doing it wrong!
I suspect that you want to use cyrillic characters. The problem is, that
most software components (also Perl) default to latin1 or similar.
A good start is always to use utf-8 encoding everywhere: your source
code, your web pages encoding and your database charset.
in your Perl file!
(unless you are absolutely sure, you are not using any non-ASCII chars)
Explicitly set your databases encoding to utf-8 on connect (see the
appropriate DBD::*/DBIC manpages how to do that) and don't use
Tip for MySQL: To check that your data isn't accidently double-encoded,
you might want to use length(). This function returns the number of
bytes, so e.g. if a field contains the string 'süß', length(field)
returns 5 (because ü and ß are encoded in 2 bytes in utf-8). If it is
not 5, your data encoding is borked.
