    Hello when i try the following code from cmd

    htdigest -c "C:\path\passfile" "ΔημιουÏγία Βάσης Δεδομένων!" webmaster
    [download]

    console understand it as Adding password for webmaster in realm
    ╬Φ╬╖╬â•â•¬â•£â•¬â”╧Ζ╧Β╬│╬ψ╬▒ ╬Τ╬υ╧Δ╬╖╧Γ ╬Φ╬╡╬┤╬â”╬ â•â•¬Ï†â•¬â•œâ•§Îšâ•¬â•œ!. as a result not
    a proper md5 crypt of the realm resultign to a faulty authentication

    What can i do? Sorry for this not beign a perl questiosn i tried other
    forums but i though of askignj this here perhaps to see if i can a
    result by trying the same thing from within a perl script file. But
    wont ti also use dos to take place like? in backticks still wotn work:
    print `htdigest -c "C:\path\passfile" "ΔημιουÏγία Βάσης Δεδομένων!"
    webmaster so what's left?

    Here is what i my attempt to do the same thing through a cgi perl
    script using the Digest::MD5 module

    open FILE, ">>$ENV{'DOCUMENT_ROOT'}/some_path/some_other_path/
    some_pass_file" or die $!; print FILE "webmaster:ΔημιουÏγία Βάσης
    Δεδομένων!:" .Digest::MD5::md5_hex("admin:ΔημιουÏγία Βάσης
    Δεδομένων!:this_is_the_pass") ."\n"; close FILE;
    [download]

    But when it comes to authentication when i enter the credentials
    apache says there are wrong.
    An encoding issue again? the init.pl file which the above code resides
    is encoded in 'UTF-8'.

    Please suggest something else than hitting my head on the wall

    so please someone answer me, is this an encoding issue again?
    Why when the user gives the username and password at http
    authentication the credentials won't match the ones stored in the
    password file?
    What might be the problem? ?You think its encoding?

    ps. I must tell you i aksed this in devshed and perlmonks but didnt
    get any luck so iam posting here too for help. Thenk you.
