Hello All,

I created a simple text file and saved it once in asci format and one more time in unicode format.

now when I run this simple program

#!/usr/bin/perl open MYFILE1, "c:\\junk\\file-ansi.txt" or die; open MYFILE2, "c:\\junk\\file-unicode.txt" or die; print "going to print the asci file\n"; print "------------------------------------------- \n"; while (<MYFILE1>) { print "$_"; } print "\n\ngoing to print the unicode file\n"; print "------------------------------------------- \n"; while (<MYFILE2>) { print "$_"; } close MYFILE1; close MYFILE2;
I see the following output.
going to print the asci file ------------------------------------------- my name is abhishek going to print the unicode file ------------------------------------------- &#9632;m y n a m e i s a b h i s h e k

Why is the unicode file not being read correctly (multi byte?) and how to make the output correct for the unicode file as well (so that it appears, just like the way the asci output is appearing?)

regards, Abhishek.

In reply to files saved in unicode are not being read correctly by abhishes

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.
