Hey there,

I have to admit I am new to scripting. I was looking for a tool to send the content of a logfile (.txt) to a mirc channel. I used the method described in irc hacks (#70) (tail log files) and managed to make it work. However, there is a problem: 


When I message the bot in mirc I get an output like this:


[20:43] <TailBot> ÿþ[
[20:43] <TailBot>
[20:43] <TailBot>
[20:43] <TailBot> ÿþ[
[20:43] <TailBot>
[20:43] <TailBot>
[20:44] <TailBot> ÿþ[
[20:44] <TailBot>
[20:44] <TailBot>
[20:45] <TailBot> ÿþ[
[20:45] <TailBot>
[20:45] <TailBot>

instead of actual text. Could this be a matter of mirc-settings? I didn't change anything yet, it is a fresh installation.


Sorry for this rather low-level questions, I have no clue where else I could ask.
