Subject: saving xml file changes encoding
Date: Fri, 23 Apr 2010 23:53:57 +0200
To: bug-XML-RSS@rt.cpan.org
From: Steffen Wirth <s.wirth@lnx-support.de>
Hi, when I am using XML:RSS (version 1.47 or 1.48) to create a xml file my Japanese characters are not shown correctly. The script reads information from a sqlite database and then I want to create the file. The encoding in the database and when I read information from the database the characters are shown correctly (e.g. メール) but when I add a new item then it is now shown correctly. e.g #!/usr/bin/perl use utf8; use XML::RSS; use Encode qw/encode decode/; my $name="メール"; my $title="どこでも"; print "$name ----- $title\n"; my $rss = XML::RSS->new(version=>'2.0'); $rss->channel( title => "$name", link => "http://link.com", language => "ja", description => "$name", pubDate => 'Thu, 23 Aug 1999 07:00:00 GMT', lastBuildDate => 'Thu, 23 Aug 1999 16:20:26 GMT', ); my $check = utf8::valid($name); print "is utf valild?: $check\n"; $rss->add_item(title => "$name", link => "http://link.com", mode => 'insert' ); print $rss->as_string; $rss->save("test.xml"); # EOF and the result is -> perl test.pl Wide character in print at test.pl line 12. メール ----- どこでも is utf valild?: 1 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <rss version="2.0" xmlns:blogChannel="http://backend.userland.com/blogChannelModule"

How are they not shown correctly? What is the difference between those you input and those that are displayed? I should note that I see these Japanese characters as squares here sometimes because I likely don't have a Japanese font.

Probably s/now/not/.

Why didn't you add "use strict;" and "use warnings;"? Furthermore, is "use utf8;" enough to output UTF-8 to STDOUT? I think you also need << binmode STDOUT, ":encoding(utf8)"; >>.

Did you set the encoding of the $rss? It's documented in the POD.

Maybe try setting the encoding. Regards, Shlomi Fish

Hi Shlomi, you are right it was an encoding problem. I could fix it with "encode_output=>'0'". Thanks a lot. king regards Steffen On 04/26/2010 09:59 AM, Shlomi Fish via RT wrote:
