    Yes, I know that. I meant your string with all the ampersands -- those are HTML Entities. They represent those characters, but in order to get the actual characters, you need to decode that first.
    This is where HTML::Entities comes in. Feed your string through decode_entities, and then do your thing with encode_guess, if needed still. The length of the output of decode_entities($title) is the string you should find the length of.

      thank u very much....

      use HTML::Entities; $title=decode_entities($title); my $title_length=length($title); $title=encode_entities($title);

      It's working

        I told you :-)
