in reply to cgi email Japanese contents scripting problem

Yes, as said above sending email in Japanese usually means sending the the text (7-bit) jis-encoded.

(1) Before you can do this you need to find out it which encoding your programm receives the data.This could be jis, shift-jis, euc-jp or Unicode. You can find out the encoding with the Jcode module from CPAN:

use Jcode; my $encoding = getcode($content);

(2) After you have found out the encoding you want to convert your string to 7 bit jis.
my $mailtext = Jcode::convert($content, "jis", $encoding);

Appart from that, the Jcode module also supplies some basic MIME handling functions.
Hope that helps,

    Thanks for all the help.

    Hanamaki san,

    In my script, is the format for your coding:

    PRINT MAIL "my $mailtext = Jcode::convert($content, "jis", $encoding)";
