Subject: Mishandled ASCII in IMDB::Film
Date: Thu, 27 Aug 2009 09:57:26 +0200
To: <bug-imdb-film@rt.cpan.org>
From: paul ginzberg <paulginzberg@hotmail.com>
Hello,

Special ASCII characters such as accents and most punctuation aren't displayed correctly. When extracting information from the IMDB HTML, relevant fields are copied verbatim, and special characters appear as, say '&#x12;' where 12 is the hexadecimal ascii code of the character.

I suggest using the following regular expression on all fields to fix this: s/\&\#x(\w\w)\;/chr(hex $1)/eg

I believe that this bug will be reproduced on all systems, but here are my details:

Perl v5.10.0
MS Vista Home Premium SP1

I hope that I have been of help

Regards
