in thread search for chr() fails

I just want to return the position where it finds the character, whatever it's called... then I can print the text between the two instances of the character...

    many of your example lines have only one instance of that character.

    Otherwise you could just use something like  print ((split /\xA0/,$_)[1])

    update

    corrected escape code

      yes... I'm familiar with and also comfortable with split...
      What I showed was an excerpt of the intersection of two files, one of which has 1 occurance, and one that has two. I will just do something to the data first, depending on which instance before I append them together...

      Thank you for your help...
