RE: Printing Japanese characters
Message ID:
I have no experience with Japanese, but have recently started investigating
how to use Perl and unicode. What I have discovered so far is that the
module for utf in Perl 5.6 is unreliable and that I need to update my Perl
to version 5.8. Since I am on Windows NT4.0 I first need to upgrade to
service pack six.
Might I recommend the "Perl and Unicode" tutorial by Simon Cozens, available
as your starting point.

Subject: Printing Japanese characters

Hi all,
 I am using Perl 5.6.1 and Windows 2000 US English OS. I am developing some
perl scripts that have to process Japanese characters and print out Japanese
characters. We use to save the files in Unicode when it has some Japanese
characters. But when we compile it or execute it with perl, we got the error
message "bare character found". Can anyone help us to solve the above
problem? We want to have have Japanese characters in our script and the
script should print Japanese characters. We don't have any Japanese OS
system and so we want the above functionality in Windows 2000 English OS. We
have installed the Japanese fonts in our system.
Any help regarding this would be a great help.
