This thread is refreshing to read!!! As a Windows user that is somewhat new to Perl, I spent the past few hours trying to figure out why one of my supplied 193 xml files would keep outputting as a bunch of Chinese (?) characters. Jim described exactly what I kept trying.
I finished my script. Everything else works - it does all my replaces beautifully. I have maybe spent 8 hours total on my script and it will save me about 3 days of work.
But, for now, I have to go to that specific XML file, open it in Notepad, and save it as 'ANSI' instead of 'Unicode' before my script will work right.
I have tried adding the use ' $string' supplied in this thread, but I get this error:
Unknown PerlIO layer 'raw:perlio:encoding(UTF-16LE):crlf:utf8'
I really would like to create re-usable code out of my script, but I have yet to find the answer.
