I think there is a small problem on handling unicode strings:

My log contains:
"\x{00e4}" does not map to ascii at /usr/bin/GetLive/GetLive.pl line 176.
Handling mail
from : 'ADAC-Newsletter'
subject : 'Wir pr\x{00e4}sentieren Ihnen das Lieblingsauto der Deutschen'

So an "ä" produced an error message!

Is it possible to add unicode handling to the scipt?
I found plenty of different solutions under:

Thanks a lot for the great script!

  • I changed the first line of the script to

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w -CS

    Seems to work!

    I'm cleaning up and I'm wondering if this is still an issue.
    I vaguely remember I included some 'locale encoding' in the script.
    Of course, this assumes your locale settings are correct ...
    Can you ping ?
