Hi all
I'm trying my first steps with Perl/Tk.

I want to read input text file and show the file contents on a frame.

The input text file has Hebrew and / or Arabic characters.
It is saved as UTF-8.

The Latin characters are displayed Ok. But the Hebrew / Arabic
characters are shown as Gibberish (I mean - those small 'x' and '[]'
instead of real Hebrew).

For example:
003134388 24633 H $$aכל ספוריו ×(c)ל ×(c)מואל יוסף ×¢×'× ×•×Ÿ

Instead of:
003134388 24633 H $$aכל ספוריו של שמואל יוסף עגנון

What can I do??
