It is not clear for me what you want to accomplish, but generally use HTML::Entities to process html entities:

use strict; use warnings; use HTML::Entities; my $line="” 3”"; decode_entities ($line);

If this module is of no help, please, try to give a step backwards and explain the kind of conversions you want to be done

Update: A closer look at your code reveals that you are not using alternation correctly: [] in a regexp is a character class, but probably you are wanting () instead (see perlretut and perlre):

$line="” 3 ”"; $line =~ s/(?:&|&amp\;)rdquo;/'/g; print "$line\n";

That prints:

' 3 '

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.
