I'm working with the files consist of unicode - UTF16 characters. I've used following code to access the file and got the the desired output:
open (FSIN, "$_")||die ("Unable to open SGML.3d file $_");
my $sfile = <FSIN>;
$sfile = encode("ascii", decode("UTF16", $sfile));
Now, the actual problem begins here. After converting the pl script to exe, i've executed the exe for the same input file, but i'm getting an error like 'Unknown encoding 'UTF16' at sample.pl...'. Can anyone throw somelight on this?
