in reply to Re^3: Conversion between code page and unicode in Perl
in thread Conversion between code page and unicode in Perl
I could read hundreds of pages of tutorials and still would be lost. Because I can't find for the first time those twenty characters of twenty thousand characters which are of essence.
There always is someone who has done this before and feels strongly about it and is willing to share it.
Finally my srategy worked and I put to work my routine. It took two hours or so. If I had to to rely on tutorials it could have taken two days or two weeks.
If you refer someone to tutorials you could also say: put your question to Google. Or simply: do it yourself. Then what is this forum for?
