Well, I'm stumped. The program will match the spaces properly when doing a split// but not when doing a s///. I have now set the attribute on the HTML form to UTF8. I have inserted the code posted earlier, and still nothing. So, to demonstrate the exact conundrum I am up against, I have reduced my code to just the barest essentials for testing this UTF8 regex.

Please feel free to try this script on your own server to see if you can get it to work properly on Chinese fonts. I have included a sample Chinese phrase in the script which you should be able to copy and paste into it for testing purposes. Compare it with an English search, and you'll see why I'm frustrated!

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT -CE use Encode; use Encode qw(_utf8_on); use Encode qw(encode decode); ##### PARSE THE FORM INPUT if ($ENV{CONTENT_LENGTH}) { read(STDIN, $buffer, $ENV{CONTENT_LENGTH}); @pairs = split(/&/,$buffer); } else { $buffer = $ENV{QUERY_STRING}; @pairs = split(/\+/,$buffer); } foreach $pair (@pairs) { ($name, $value) = split(/=/,$pair); $value =~ tr/+/ /; $value =~ s/%([a-fA-F0-9][a-fA-F0-9])/pack("C",hex($1))/eg; $input{$name} = $value; } $terms=$input{terms}; ##### START TESTING PHASE print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; print "TERMS: $terms"; ##### TRY A SPLIT ($a, $b, $c, $d, $e, $f) = split/\p{IsSpace}/, $terms; print "<p>A:$a:<p>B:$b:<p>C:$c:<p>D:$d:<p>E:$e:<p>F:$f:\n"; ##### NOW TRY A SUBSTITUTION $word = qr/\b(?!(?:AND|OR|XOR|NOT)\b)\w+/i; $terms =~ s/($word)\p{IsSpace}*($word)/$1 AND $2/g for 1..2; print "<p>Terms:$terms\n"; ##### PRINT THE WEBPAGE print <<HTML; <html lang=utf8> <head> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=utf8"> <title>SEARCH</title> </head><body> <h1 align="center">Search</h1> <form name="ff" method="POST" accept-encoding="UTF-8" accept-charset="utf-8" action="$0"> Search terms: <input type="text" size="40" name="terms" value="$terms"></input> <p>An example Chinese phrase: &#32102;&#32842; &#22825;&#23460;&#25152 +; &#26377;&#25104;&#21729; <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"></input> </form></body></html> HTML
