in thread Upside Down Text Revised

I'm running on Windows XP if that makes a difference? As you can see from the output it is having trouble finding the upside down equivalent to the T, E, P, R, L, D, N. I have posted pictures here: Click Here to see the exact output.

    Text::UpsideDown is dead simple in this respect, it just replaces each ASCII character (except for symmetrical ones like H or I) with a corresponding Unicode character that looks like its upside-down version and returns you that string. The question marks are from your terminal. Maybe your font doesn't have the necessary characters? I don't remember how one changes the font in a Windows XP console but it should be possible to set something like Courier New that has good support for the more exotic ISO-10646 characters.

      I set the cmd.exe to Lucida Console and that did not improve anything. should I be editing files in Notepad instead of wordpad? This is perplexing

        should I be editing files in Notepad instead of wordpad?

        Um, that could help, maybe -- wordpad can edit "text" files, but if you save as rtf that won't work -- most programmers don't use wordpad

        Did you add Win32::Console::OutputCP( 65001 );??

        Did you check the bytes your program generates? How does it look in notepad.txt? > thembytes.txt

        notepad thembytes.txt
