( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have the same problem as zakrebrowski. When I use his example I still do not get the characters right:
#!/usr/bin/perl use XML::Simple; use Data::Dumper; use Encode; my $content = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\" ?>\n"; $content .= "<tag>\x{c3}\x{bb}</tag>\n"; print "input:\n$content\n"; my $xml = new XML::Simple; my $data = $xml->XMLin($content, KeepRoot => 1); encode_utf8($data->{'tag'}); print "data: ".$data->{'tag'}."\n"; print Dumper $data;
input: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <tag></tag> data: $VAR1 = { 'tag' => "\x{fb}" };

My real life code tries to parse an xml with xml::Simple and stores the data in a mysql-database. The database has the same encoding problems as above.

I am looking at this sample code for days now with no idea where to go on ... Any help is appreciated!

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
