To the tool wizards out there,
Seems like lots of files I get off the net use \x80\x98 or the
like to denote various non-ascii characters. Is there a way to
use perl (or any other unix tool) to replace
\x<whatever>\x<whatever> with, say whatever ASCII or ISO-8859-1
character or characters?
thanks in advance, guys,
