( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thank you very much, moritz, for your helpful reply. I greatly appreciate it.

So, what did you try?

I tried variations of something very similar to your second example using Encode::Repair::learn_recoding(). In hindsight, I believe the problem that thwarted my efforts was my inclusion of use utf8 in the script. Needless to say, I thought I was doing the right thing when, in fact, I was doing exactly the wrong thing.

I just tested using Encode::Repair to repair damaged text that has non-ASCII characters in it.

It works! Here's the script.

use v5.16;

use Encode::Repair qw( repair_encoding );

while (my $damaged_text = <DATA>) {
    chomp $damaged_text;

    my $repaired_text = repair_encoding(
        $damaged_text, [
            decode => 'UTF-8',
            encode => 'UCS-2LE',
        ]
    );

    say $repaired_text;
}

exit 0;

Brilliantly, this prints…

Notice, however, that I had to remove binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(UTF-8)'. This version of the script also works.

use v5.16;

use Encode qw( decode );
use Encode::Repair qw( repair_encoding );

binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(UTF-8)';

while (my $damaged_text = <DATA>) {
    chomp $damaged_text;

    my $repaired_text = repair_encoding(
        $damaged_text, [
            decode => 'UTF-8',
            encode => 'UCS-2LE',
        ]
    );

    say decode('UTF-8', $repaired_text);
}

exit 0;

I can study and study and study the Perl documentation, but I'll never grok the subtleties of Perl's Unicode model. It's simply too profoundly confusing for me.

I love your module, moritz! Thanks for it, and for your help here.
