( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have a powerbuilder debug file which is in unicode. I tried encoding it and did some processing. the code is as below:

#!/usr/bin/perl my $input=$ARGV[0]; open(INFILE,'<:encoding(utf-16LE)',$input) or die("Not able to open th +e input file $input $!"); while(<INFILE>) { my $currentline=$_; next if($currentline=~/^\s+(CLOSE|OPEN)\s+/i); print $currentline; }

Next is, I need to decode the modified encoded source file. I tried the below code for decoding but still got empty lines.

open my $fh, '>:encoding(utf-16LE)', $currentline; open my $fh, '<:encoding(utf-16LE)', $menufile;
I am finding it a bit tough to understand and get a solution for decoding.Please help me in this. Thanks in advance.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
