( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Okay, thanks for the information.

But this line:

$field =~ s/([^\x20-\x7E])/sprintf("&#x%X;", ord($1))/eg;

Won't that convert anything greater than or equal to a "space" (ascii 0x20) up to 0xfe?  And why are you skipping 0xff?

And other than those things, isn't that really equivalent to what I was doing?  Except that, it appears you are outputting ’ where I was outputting \, and are those in fact equivalent?

Update:  I just realized I missed the fact that your regex has '^', so it negates those characters.  That makes a lot more sense.

But I would still ask, isn't the functionality of this subroutine the same as my original (other than the extra 'x' in your output "#xNN;", which I still think is wrong), or am I missing something else?


s''(q.S:$/9=(T1';s;(..)(..);$..=substr+crypt($1,$2),2,3;eg;print$..$/

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
