sring encode problem (hexadecimal)by courierb (Novice)
|on Jan 19, 2011 at 10:27 UTC||Need Help??|
courierb has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi, I'd really appreciate some help here.
for example i have a character "€" (i dont know if the system will filter it out or not)
after encoded it it shows as "€"; know as hexadecimal
just as a reference i copy it below
actally i want to know the equevelent of module or code perl which do the same task .
i dig into this forum found a few discussion about it. here is the one related to my question.
it seems HTML::Entities is related to my question.
I believe its decode is function well for me. i have tested it
now i try to encode it from a "double bit character" to a string in the foramt of nnn( i just know its name called hexadecimal)
i have tried HTML::Entities but i cant get the expecting result from it.
here is my code. could anyone help me a bit?????
How comes it is functional well in decoding while failed in encoding??
I suspect i missed some thing but i cant find it out. please be note
i wish it's out put be "& #x20ac;" if i key in "€" as the input.
Thanks in advance Cliff
