I know that this question is slightly off-topic, but still seems relevant. I am unable to download and run 1nickt
's solution Re: Regex: matching any Number then a hyphen
to a recent question because of a single non-ascii character.
While displaying the node in the browser 'Chrome' on Windows 7, I click on the 'download' button. The file displays correctly. I right-click and select 'save as' then save as I.pl. When I run the file, I get the following error:
Malformed UTF-8 character: \x96 (unexpected continuation byte 0x96, wi
+th no prec
eding start byte) at I.pl line 9.
Malformed UTF-8 character (fatal) at I.pl line 9.
Using Internet explorer is slightly different, but no better.
I have also tried cut-and-paste into the editor 'gvim'. It does not even display correctly. No luck saving it to a file.
What is the recommended way to download and edit files containing UTF-8 characters from perlmonks into windows?
Sorry if I have overlooked the tutorial that I need.
