That's why LC_ALL should be set to POSIX and not to a locale, because of
these problems arising. I don't know of a cleaner way. Quite frankly, that
perl script sed's out other kinds of symbols in the exact same way. GCC-3
just adds a few more, so that script now seds a few more too. I can't take
into account that other languages are used, and the book does assume you're
not doing that.

Having that said, if you want to take the time to find a way so this
script will work under any circumstance, go right ahead. I myself am not
going to do it though.
