in reply to Encoding and decoding a Unicode

I tried the below code for decoding but still got empty lines.

Some unexpected empty lines or only empty lines?

Empty lines after (almost) all lines you read? chomp!

#!/usr/bin/perl my $input=$ARGV[0];

Add use strict; and use warnings;. Ignoring perl's debugging aids just wastes everyone's time.

And finally, whenever you think that perl has encoding problems, show us a hex dump of the input and the output.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

    Thanks much for your reply! :-)

    After encoding the unicode file, did some modifications (In the stated example it is all lines other than lines with 'OPEN' or 'CLOSE').

    After this process when i try to decode the encoded lines, i am getting only empty lines for all the read lines.

    I want help in decoding the encoded file.
