No problems. The octal code 055 is the ASCII hyphen (-), while 255 octal
is the ISO-8859-1 code for soft hyphen, which oddly enough is often used
to encode a long dash rather than a soft hyphen. This little substitution
was something I added to parse_doc.pl, and kept in conv_doc.pl, because
it solved a problem for me in dealing with some of my PDFs. I don't
think it should pose a problem for anyone else, but if it ever does it's
easily removed from the script.
