I copy and pasted some text from perldoc'ing some module documentation and perl is complaining
Unrecognized character \xE2 at /home/forda/bin/send_to_mms line 6.
I can't see any extra characters even when I try to view non-printables with "set list" in vim (which displays all my tabs and newlines).
I tried replacing bits and pieces, but the only fix I could blunder into was replacing the entire line.
What does perl see that I don't? From where does this '\xE2' arise?
Is there any way to avoid or fix this more easily either on the perldoc side or in the editor?
