I hadn't encountered this error before, so I loaded your
script and added:
Here's what I got:
Wide character in print at cc.pl line 77 (#1)
(W utf8) Perl met a wide character (>255) when it wasn't
expecting one. This warning is by default on for I/O
(like print). The easiest way to quiet this warning is
simply to add the :utf8 layer to the output, e.g.
binmode STDOUT, ':utf8'. Another way to turn off the
warning is to add no warnings 'utf8'; but that is often
closer to cheating. In general, you are supposed to
explicitly mark the filehandle with an encoding, see
open and perlfunc/binmode.
So I added the following before my first print statement
and everything quieted down.
binmode STDOUT, ':utf8';
