( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have discovered adding utf8decode => 1 to the xml2hash makes it work now but I don't really understand why. I am doing anything wrong here? What might have changed in XML::Fast to cause this to happen?

The changelog isn't really verbose, but I suspect it might be #71532 which was marked as fixed recently. There is also #71533 which is still open, and which indicates that the module might have issues with Unicode data in general. I haven't investigated deeper than that*, but if you have verified with a hex dump that your input file is indeed ISO-8859-1, where "" should be represented by 0xF8, and you have verified with Devel::Peek that the Perl variable contains the correct data ("" is Unicode U+00F8), then the error message "[�ndby IF]", where � is the Unicode character "Replacement Character" (U+FFFD), indicates that there is indeed some strange Unicode stuff going on in the module, since you are opening the file with the correct encoding.

* Update before posting: I see ablanke has investigated the code.

Update: Actually, ikegami is right that the XML parser should be doing the decoding.

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.
