in thread tr{}{} doesn't wanna work.. what am I doing wrong?

I'd recommend this approach because no matter what you put into your list, you're going to miss a character, especially as new characters are added (who cared about € 14 years ago?) What happens if someone inserts Å? á? Ø? Æ? ð ? þ ? — ? „ ? Kanji? Mathematical symbols?

You're *much* better off listing the characters that you want to keep, and removing all others, if only because it's less work to maintain in the long run, as you don't have to worry about adding new characters, or if someone's messed up the encoding of the script.

[mark4]: Do you h=know how I can get pp.exe? Is there a module I can install that includes this?
[marto]: I always found Strawberry Perl on windows to be a much better environment, made life much easier
[marto]: pp. install it like you would any other module
[marto]: it probably exists in one of the PPM repositories
[marto]: failing that see the README
[mark4]: I installed "PAR" from the ppm install window. pp.exe. did not show up.
[marto]: it should just be a script, pp, or on windows pp.bat, post install you should just be able to call pp -x packed.exe as the PPM package should put everything required into the appropriate path
[marto]: ah, some time ago pp became it's own package, try searching your repo for PAR::Packer
[marto]: again, Strawberry + cpanm for the win: cpanm pp to install
