I just resaved the file out as unicode 8-bit and everything worked just fine.

Ah yes, Windows does like UTF-16...

use warnings; use strict; use Encode 'encode'; my $in = "1130\t"; my $str = encode('UTF-16', $in, Encode::FB_CROAK); $str=~s/^\xFE\xFF|\t//g; # remove BOM & tab print $str*1, "\n"; __END__ Argument "\01\01\03\00\0" isn't numeric in multiplication (*) at - lin +e 7. 0

An alternative for you would also be open($fh, '<:raw:encoding(UTF-16)', 'filetoparse.txt') ... (Updated to add :raw as per choroba's reply, thanks!)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
