Whenever I save a wordpeocessoe file [OOo, say] into a
        text file, I get a slew of hex codes to indicate the char to be
        used.  I'm looking for a perl one-liner or script to translate
        hex back into ', ", -- [that's a dash), and so forth.  Why does
        this fail to trans the hex code to an apostrophe?

        perl -pi.bak -e 's/\xe2\x80\x99/'/g'  

        If there any another other tools, I'm interested!

        tia, guys,
