in thread encoding data containing non english characters so as to be decoded by non perl program
The problem is that i donot know how to find what kind of characters are present on a webpage ( from which i grabbed the data). Is there a rule of thumb regarding the data encoding that i get using useragent->get(). If i can have data in UTF-8 format i can use java ( read junk ;-) ) to decode it.
