in thread The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:

I voted for LotR, but I'm a Clancy fan as well, having read all of the main-line books except the newest one which I haven't started yet.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates the spinoffs. In fact, it seems as if the majority of the people who like TC don't like the spinoffs.. Feel free to prove my generalization wrong! :)

BTW - Without Remorse is a good one, but I'm still partial to Red Storm Rising :)

[ELISHEVA]: I may have to resort to SOPW - but was hoping that this would be something simple
[erix]: I'd just remove the BOM, it is pretty simple
[ELISHEVA]: Simple yes. and I did consider that. but this isn't one off . An important data source that I don't control is generating bom prefixed utf8 files and I'd rather not have to be munging files every few months.
[erix]: on teh other hand a SOPW is pretty much garanteed to get an answer from tux (and probably the module fixed)
[ELISHEVA]: plus it bugs me that something that *should* be simple, *should* work- unicode and noms aren't exactly the new kids on the block
[ELISHEVA]: well then since the obvious possible mistakes on my part have been ruled out, SOPW it is.
[ELISHEVA]: the data source, or one of them, is the OECD - they provide a *lot* of data that ought to be easily available to perl programmers.
[erix]: it might be cunning to mention the module in the title... :)
[ELISHEVA]: fancy that - a title that actually describes the problem :-)
[ELISHEVA]: but actually thanks for the reminder
