Perl extension for detecting and converting Russian character sets
From the README file for LinguaRUCharset LinguaRUCharset - Perl extension for detecting and converting various russian character sets KOI8-r, Windows-1251, CP866, ISO-8859-5, X-Mac-Cyrillic, russian text in english letters, russian part of Unicode and UTF-8. This module can be especially useful for computers with broken cyrillic locales like foreign web hosts.
This module does not use locale or unicode and is written in pure Perl, so it will probably work at any computer.
