I have this character appearing in places in some files I have: Â (if you can't see it or it looks like a question mark it's the Acirc character (capital A with a circumflex over it))
I simply want to grep replace this char with a space, however when I do this:
grep --color -ri Â myproject.php
Putty gets very confused, as does grep.
As I understand it there's probably a way to use an escaped hex code with grep.. does anyone know how?
The character is showing up on my web page as a weird
<?>. The http headers for the page specify utf-8 as does the meta character set and I still see the strange character. In putty it appears as a space (putty also set to utf-8.) When I copy from vim and paste into grep it simply doesn't find it.
