You know, you're completely correct, and that mostly proves your point about using a module. I theoretially knew what the proper code should be, but I wasn't paying attention and wrote something that was broken and didn't even think about it, the module would have been much easier.

    You are both correct. s/%(\d\d)/chr $1/eg will do fine if all you care about are encoded #'s (but then, you might as well use the faster and shorter s/%23/#/g). But if you want to be more general, use what mdillon states.
