Detecting multibyte/wide characters?

Hello swisheites:

I have a question related to swish-e, if someone in
this knowledgable group might know the answer:

Suppose I have word in a perl scalar ($w). 

How can I detect if $w contains multibyte or 'wide'

Thanks in advance if anyone knows. I suppose this
might be in a faq somewhere but I couldn't find it.
Thanks again.
