No. The first just imports function "decode_utf8", and the second affects
the way all non-ascii characters in your source code are treated. But by
running decode_utf8() on non-ascii strings/bytes (static or dynamic) you
may achieve the similar goal.

perldoc utf8; man Encode


perl -e 'print+chr(64+hex)for+split//,d9b815c07f9b8d1e'
