I'm trying to slurp through a file with Ruby 1.9.x and there are some
characters in it that choke my script. The character sequence I've found so
far is "+" and all the things I try to do with it gives something like:

   irb(main):007:0> mystr = ['+']
   SyntaxError: (irb):7: invalid multibyte char (UTF-8)
   (irb):7: invalid multibyte char (UTF-8)
   (irb):7: syntax error, unexpected $end

The end goal is to wind up with these things being changed to either ASCII
or UTF-8. Either one should be useable.

Thoughts?
