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

If you provide sample data you may get more specific guidance. Your description is a bit too vague for anyone to be certain what you have as input and what you want as output. There are many possibilities.

In addition to the suggestions already given, you may find perlunifaq and Encode helpful. I suspect you don't need Encode for what you are trying to do, but these will give you terminology and context to help you understand about encodings in general and about perl's internal representation of strings, which may be what you are trying to manipulate.

Perl regular expressions support escape sequences that allow you to specify fairly arbitrary values in your string, including Unicode code points.

\033 octal char (example: ESC) \x1B hex char (example: ESC) \x{263a} long hex char (example: Unicode SMILEY) \cK control char (example: VT) \N{name} named Unicode character

It may be that all you need to do is specify the correct characters in your RE, using one of the escapes (probably long hex char or named Unicode character, depending on your preference). But it is possible you will have to decode your input first.

If you use Devel::Peek's Dump to dump your input data and post that, then you might get more specific advice.


In reply to Re^5: replace string by ig
in thread replace string by sandy1028

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.
