in reply to Five Common Misconceptions While Learning Perl

Most of the objections to perldoc can be solved by pointing people to perldoc.perl.org. I personally find it better than the perldoc "man pages" because it is easier to search, can be simply bookmarked, etc.

If you're learning Perl, the same site offers an archive of itself that you can download and run locally. Truly invaluable.

[Yaerox]: I feel like i'm not seeing the forest for the trees. Can someone give me a hint how to research converting all kinds of files into ansi? If origin file is utf8 convert to ansi, is origin file is ansi then skip file.
[1nickt]: Yaerox probably best to whip up an SSCCE demonstrating the failure in what you have now and post to SoPW as a question.
[Corion]: Yaerox: That's a somewhat hard problem. Encode solves the conversion part, but for guessing what encoding a file is in, that's the hard part
