When is the last time you had to look into converting a charset for data coming from an HP3000?

Luckily, I found this post where a guy wrote a program in BASIC. It weighs in at 56 lines.

Wait, what’s that? Someone else wrote a version in Perl, and it’s about a dozen lines?

It always comes back to my old friend Perl, doesn’t it…
