Re: [shawnhcorey] extracting a "backslash" character
[In reply to]
I tried it but it did not work. The output was:
@hex_seqs $VAR1 = ;
Do you have any other suggestions? Basically, I want to replace the \xF4 with its character equivalent (in this case it would be "ô").
In Perl, if I print that string, the \x is automatically recognized as a hex handler, and the output is the correct character. However, I am not printing, but I am passing the result as a string to another application. The other application doesn't recognize the \x, so it prints the string as is. That is why I want to handle this on the Perl side before passing the result.
