	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,
