Thanks man but I hate the Encode docs. They can't give one lousy example on the exact syntax of CHECK to suppress unicode's stupid errors. Anyway I tried shoving ,Encode::FB_QUIET
in there and it seems to work at turning off the noise. But as usual the docs are not so clear and seem to say that FB_QUIET stops decoding at the error and returns undecoded data? Really not useful. Is just sending Unicode's useless fatals to devnull an effective way to deal with data I just don't care too much about being exactly and perfectly correct according to the commandments of the freakin unicode consortium? Practical extraction of text used to be so easy, now it's calculus :-/
Thank you for your help
