Dear PerlMonks,

I have found that I can print some Unicode characters to stdout but not all. I'm not sure why there is a difference.

I am using perl 5.22 under Cygwin on a 64-bit Windows 10 PC.

My code excerpt is as follows:

binmode(STDOUT, ":utf8"); binmode(STDERR, ":utf8"); print length("\N{LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A}\N{COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT}"), +"\n"; print "\N{LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A}\N{COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT}", "\n"; my $smiley_from_name = "\N{WHITE SMILING FACE}"; my $smiley_from_code_point = "\N{U+263a}"; print $smiley_from_name, "\n"; print $smiley_from_code_point, "\n"; my $dui = "\N{U+5C0D}"; print $dui, "\n"; die "\n", "\N{U+5C0D}", "\N{U+4E0D}", "\N{U+8D77}", ", the file $targe +t_file does not exist.\n\n" unless -e $target_file;
What I get is the following:
2
A'


?

???, the file yyy does not exist.

What I expected to get was the following:

2
A'




對不起, the file yyy does not exist.

So I am unable to figure out why some code points work just fine while others display only as ?.

Any suggestions?
謝謝你們

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.
