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

Hi, I need help in writing a perl program to convert an xml file which has utf8 characters to their respective named entities for some files and to their numbered entities for some other files.

for example, below is some text from input file

<element1> <p> Some sample text with “special characters” in the file </p> </element1>

Below is sample output I am looking for Case 1: (Numbered entities)

<element1> <p> Some sample text with &#8220;special characters&#8221; in the file </p> </element1>

Below is sample output I am looking for Case 2: (Named entities)

<element1> <p> Some sample text with &ldquo;special characters&rdquo; in the file </p> </element1>

Thanks in Advance !

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
