Text-Unaccent (1.08)

As you can see from these test results:

matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Text-Una...

this has had an unpatched bug report for ten years or so where it doesn't cope with sixty-four bit systems:

rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?i...

It's regrettable that people are using this as a dependence even now:

metacpan.org/requires/module/Text::Un...

Another thing worth noting is that this module completely ignores Perl's Unicode encoding. Try commenting out the "use utf8;" in the following:

use utf8;

use Text::Unaccent;

my $charset = 'UTF-8';

my $string = 'ÀÁÂÃÄÅAあ';

print unac_string($charset, $string);

The output results will be identical.
