in reply to questions about character encoding

The problem is that when you write $string =~ s/[אבגדהו]/a/; the accented characters are in Mac encoding, not in UTF-8.So they never match in the string.

You should be able to fix this problem using Unicode::Map8 or maybe, I am not (yet!) familiar with it, Encode, which will be part of the core in 5.8.0.

    Cool, many thanks. Unicode::Map8 looks like it is just what I am looking for to get everything in the same character encoding.
