Hi,

It comes from `net files` which appears to be "windows-1255" on my system.

I tried this : return decode('windows-1255', shift @_); it didn't work
for me. The string gets converted to something unreadable instead of
Hebrew. Furthermore, when I print the string to stdout (בדיקה.doc in
the original) I get 14 characters for hebrew while there should be
only 10.


David.
