in thread Can Perl convert ISO-? | WIN-? | MAC-? to UTF-8?

Greetings Khen1950fx , and thank you for your reply.
That's good advice. But if I understand what you've offered, it would strip the BOM
(ByteOrderMarker) from the file(s). While that was probably the case somewhere in their
past. None of them appear to have one now.

Thank you again, for your response


#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
use perl::always;
my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
print $perl_version;

    Khen1950fx is a troll , you should ignore him
    he doesn't understand your question
    he doesn't even try to understand your question
    he scans your posts for at most three keywords, and then copy/pastes some code related to those keywords
    virtually never has anything do with the question

[stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.
[shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
[shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
