grep for British pound sign?
I'm trying to parse a web page for prices in £.
The problem is that grep doesn't recognise the £ sign, and so doesn't return lines which contain it. Anyone know how this is done?
are you able to use ASCII codes???
decimal value 156 = british pound sign.
I've sort of solved the problem.
If I convert the web page to UTF-8 (with iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8 go.htm) grep works fine. I think I could probably get a similar effect by changing the $LANG variable, but iconv works for me.
It would be nice if grep could take ASCII codes, but I don't think it does. (There's no mention in the man page).
