in thread character replace

The problem is if the text in the file contains $text='&bush& The output will be &bush& if the try to replace only &. So I have a added all the entities to a file and convert the only & to &. I have to replace only character '&' and not & Now I used the module
#!/usr/bin/perl; use HTML::Entities; $to_decode = "&an HTML string - <© TVS>"; $decoded = decode_entities($to_decode); print "original data --> $to_decode\n"; print "decoded data --> $decoded\n";
The optput will be original data --> &an HTML string - <© TVS> decoded data --> &an HTML string - <© TVS> I want the output be in the form original data --> &an HTML string - <© TVS> How will i do it using the module?
