in reply to Check UTF8

What have you tried so far? What did you expect to happen?

I am only able to guess on your problem, as you gave very little detail. Do you want to keep lines that only use ASCII? Do you want to keep lines that are not UTF-8 but are valid Latin-1 or ISO-2022-JP or some other encoding?

If it really is a matter of ASCII or non-ASCII UTF-8, just reject a line if it includes any character above chr(127). Other encodings will present a bit more challenge.
