Unanswered: text handling error in perl from mySQL
when I try to read text from a mySQl db that has characters other than just text like dashes(-) or quotes (') (") perl reads them as script and I get error.
How can I "decode"(?) "format"(?) the text so that perl returns all the text in the mysql db?
Thanks in advance
