change character set in API delivery

> I run a Perlscript with a Database-Interface in cygwin. The database is web-based. The character set of my values is latin1, but when I browse the Database the values are shown in UTF-8. Does cygwin generally deliver values in UTF-8? Can I change it somehow? The values should be encoded in latin1.
> To make it clearer: I don't want to change the character set in the console, but in the work process of cygwin.

perl or cygwin per se do no encoding with your database data.
This is a matter of the perl module and database client and server you
are using. So you are better asking at perlmonks
