That will only handle that one character. The problem is there are other characters that are modified as well. After my previous post the other day, I ended up going and making a much more verbose version of that script. Now the bad characters can be referred to by name. Plus I added a silly way of making it display the identity of characters to make it easier to find more that need to be fixed.

#!/usr/bin/perl -n #use strict; #use warnings; use charnames (); use encoding "utf8"; $|++; my $chars = { 'HYPHEN' => '-', # \x{2010} 'MINUS SIGN' => '-', # \x{2212} 'FIGURE DASH' => '-', # \x{2012} 'RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK' => "'", # \x{2212} 'BOX DRAWINGS LIGHT VERTICAL' => '|', # \x{2502} }; # If the first character is an equal sign, skip it and # display the identity of each remaining characters. # if (/^=/) { for my $index ( 1 .. length($_) - 1 ) { my $char = substr( $_, $index++, 1 ); print $char . " " . sprintf( "\\x{%04X}", ord($char) ) . "\" = '" . charnames::viacode( ord($char) ) . "'\n" ; } } else { for my $cname ( keys %$chars ) { my $char = chr( charnames::vianame($cname) ); s/$char/$chars->{$cname}/g; } print; }
