( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You need to mark STDOUT as being in UTF-8. Either binmode ..., ":encoding(UTF-8)"; or the slightly cryptic perl -C2 option will work:

$ perl -wE 'use utf8; binmode STDOUT, ":encoding(UTF-8)"; print "ייייי + ", length "ייייי", "\n";'

prints

ייייי 5

$ perl -C2 -wE 'use utf8; print "ייייי ", length "ייייי", "\n";'

prints

ייייי 5

Title:
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.
