When in doubt , decompose.

Have you tried dumping the data structure storing the result of parsing the umc file? Does it look right? If you are storing conversion rules in a hash, what happens if you look up '{i}' (or 'i') independently in the hash? Do you get the right unicode?

What 'key' do you need to lookup the unicode for '{i}'? If the data structures are storing the right information, what about the code that is supposed to be converting '{i}' into a form suitable for look-up in your encoding data structures. How is '{i}' being extracted? What happens if you separate out the code that extracts '{i}' and run it separately? Do you get a key suitable for look-up? Or do you get '{i' or 'i}' or even '{i}' when in fact you need '{i}' (or vice versa)?

I'd also investigate further why it was necessary to comment out the mapping for the left curly brace. Are right curlies also a problem? If not, what is special about left curlies? Is this a hint about how the encoding/decoding algorithm works? Perhaps there is something deeper that connects the problems with left curlies and '{i}'?

Best, beth

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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
