in reply to Excluding non ascii characters

What about a character range? And if you want to delete those characters, you also can use tr///.

$myline =~ tr/\x80-\xff//d;

or if you want to stick to s///.

$myline =~ s/[\x80-\xff]/ /g;

    That will only remove the non-ASCII characters that are in iso-latin-1, a very small portion of non-ASCII characters. Fix:
    # Replace with space $myline =~ s/[^\x00-\x7F]/ /g; # Delete character $myline =~ tr/\x00-\x7F//cd; $myline =~ s/[^\x00-\x7F]//g;
