( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

these fonts use ISFOC/ISCII encoding.Not the 8-bit
ASCII.Unicode encoding has been proposed for this
script, but most font creation software (e.g.
Fontographer) for this script support either ISFOC/ISO Latin/Win 3.1 etc,
but not Unicode.
I'm using Perl 5.6 which supports Unicode, but that is of
no use, since the font I use does not use Unicode encoding.

Anyhow does Unicode have anything to do with where the
problem is?......

The search function worked correctly giving the position of
the first *.The problem is I could not extract the word
next to it using the get function because of the escape
sequence/metacharcters thing.

Could we use a loop here instead of get and read each
char after the 2nd * ,one at a time until we get a

And yes, I can see the actual font in the Tk text widget
window on running the script.

I could read the entire contents of the window into a scalar
and do a regexp search in it, but I still need the positions
(line no, char no)of the matches found, in the window.

By the way we can do a regexp search in the search function
itself, if we use the -regex switch.

  • 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).
