WWW::Dict::Leo::Org encoding issueby fanticla (Scribe)
|on Jun 13, 2010 at 17:40 UTC||Need Help??|
fanticla has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
a rather silly problem: I'm using the WWW::Dict::Leo::Org module (it gets and parses the content of an online dictionary, HTML in utf8) but I am exeriencing the following encoding problem: I cannot properly show characters such as äüö.
The script is quite simple:
If I open output.txt, for example with notepad++, I see that the encoding is right (utf8), but it fails to properly show characters such as äüö.
If I do not explicitly declare the utf flag (the HTML site is utf8 coded) and I open output.txt, I get a Ansii coded file. äüö are not correctly displayed. If I change the encoding in notepad++ from ansii to utf8, all characters are displayed right!
Anyone has a suggestion what I am doing wrong? Thanks, Cla
