Hey Monks, I've searched far and wide and I climbed the mountain of knowledge for assistance.
I have an HTML Form (saved in UTF8 encoding, french text), once the users input their information, the form post is accept-char: UTF8 and executes a PERL script. This script outputs the same variables from the previous FORM and asks for confirmation.
I've declared binmode UTF8 which allows the self-printing HTML text to print out all the accents etc. This all works fine until a field in the form contains an accent/special character (like the name for example).
The PERL script prints out content fine, but when it prints out a variable that came from the FORM itself, the accents become jumbled characters.
I'm not exactly sure why this is happening or how to solve it.
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.
