I get 73 printed on EBCDIC platform. I think it is supposed to print
129 as it is the numeric equivalent of 'a'.

On your EBCDIC platform, what does this give?
It prints 73

It should print 97 on all platforms. Because:
$string contains 1 byte, the byte that represents 'a' in the platform's
default character encoding.
The encode call should convert from the default encoding to iso-8859-16
And 'a' in iso-8859-16 is 97.
So $enc_string should be a single byte, 97, everywhere.
