in thread Unicode and Regexps: convert or am I missing something?

use Encode; my $string=Encode::decode('UTF-16LE',$data_from_google); $string=~/what you want/;

from_to is the wrong function to use. It converts between byte strings, but to correctly work with regexp you need character strings, so you need to use decode

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)
