Perl extension to strip the high bit off of ISO-8859-1 text

The TextStriphigh module exports a single function C. This function takes one argument, a string possibly containing high ASCII characters in the ISO-8859-1 character set, and transforms this into a string containing only 7 bits ASCII characters, by substituting every high bit character with a similar looking standard ASCII character, or with a sequence of standard ASCII characters.

Because of precisely the deficiency this package tries to offer a workaround for is present in some of the things that process pod, there are no examples in this manpage. Look at the source or the test script if you want examples.
