Using encodingby MorayJ (Beadle)
|on Jan 10, 2013 at 18:12 UTC||Need Help??|
MorayJ has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm kind of struggling with the whole encoding thing as have a csv file that contains, when viewed in MS Outlook, the character(s) Â£ representing the £ sign.
I suppose what I don't know, is what character set this is, and what character set Outlook is using.
I am trying to use the file with the following code:
Am I right in thinking that I need to find the correct character set for the import - i.e. If the csv file contains the odd character, it is probably not utf8 and needs to be called in with the right character set?
Thanks for looking at this
