( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I was going to recommend passing only characters that don't exist in iso-latin-1 to unidecode using a fallback handler to encode. It works, but I'm getting an error (Close with partial character.) when the file handle is closed, and I have no idea how to fix it.

Here's the code anyway:

use strict; use warnings; use PerlIO::encoding qw( ); use Text::Unidecode qw( unidecode ); use constant FB_UNIDECODE => sub { unidecode(chr($_[0])) }; my $file = '...'; local $PerlIO::encoding::fallback = FB_UNIDECODE; open(my $fh, '>:encoding(iso-8859-1)', $file) or die("Unable to create file \"$file\": $!\n"); print $fh "abc\x{201C}def\x{2013}ghi";
