in thread Problems w/ encoding in terminal

Without seeing the contents of the file, I cannot tell, but it seems it contains some bytes that are not UTF-8.

    Exactly! I apologise exceedingly! -- I was watching my files' content encoding always, but this time i missed it. Please pardon me!

    Now, how do i tell PERL to warn me on opening non-UTF8 file's content?

    I used:

    use utf8::all; open $fh, '<', $file || die "sopen: Cann't open $file $!"; binmode $fh, ':encoding(UTF-8)'; do{ $cont.=<$fh>; }until( eof( $fh ) ); close $fh;

    But it keeps saying:

    utf8 "\xB4" does not map to Unicode at ...

      Good time of the day.

      Also i wanted to ask, having used the pragma utf8::all, how do i process data that is not in unicode? - I have to save the result of the search by linux command "find" that gives my paths in unicode and non-unicode char.s. Have i to stop using the utf8 module for a moment and then enable and convert all the data to unicode - to work farther w/ it (like regexp-ing)? Or there are other ways?

      Alright, i guess i have better to start a new thread - as the original is complete long ago. :o)
