Greetings to all.
the following issue does not occur with perl 5.12, unfortunately I have
to work with 5.10 at my installation and I don't have the administration
rights just to upgrade my perl.
The version is:
"This is perl, v5.10.0 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi".
I am trying to use HTML::TableExtract on an ISO-8859-1 encoded file. The
extraction works, the data are precisely what I want, but I always get a
warning, namely that "Parsing of undecoded UTF-8 will give garbage when
Is there anything other than turning warnings off locally that I can do
to supress this warning? Or does this module not work with
latin1-encoded data? I also tried invoking utf8_mode(0), to no avail.
My version of HTML::Parser is 3.69 and of HTML::TableExtract 2.10.
Re: HTML::TableExtract w. perl 5.10
I will work on that, it's not that easy as the program is complex. In
the meantime, does anyone know how to get HTML::Parser to output the
position and the value of the offending byte sequence? I installed it in
my home directory so I can modify the source if necessary. The warning
is easy to find.
This looks tricky. Like I mentioned the code works fine with Perl 5.12.
