Character encoding of micronsby joec_ (Scribe)
|on Feb 06, 2009 at 15:50 UTC||Need Help??|
joec_ has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
This kind of question may have been asked before, but here goes:
I have a clob that is returned from an Oracle database with encoding WE8ISO8859P1. Contained in the clob are various scientific symbols such as the micron sign
This seems to display ok when i look at the table in TOAD, but when i fetch the data and write it to a file, the micron gets replaced with a question mark.
I have tried the following, with no success, using the Encode module.
But this still prints ? for the micron symbols. Do i need a different encoding or some such?
Thanks in advance.
