Apparently this is not a problem with the script, but with the file
encoding. The console freezes on this character even when I just do a
"cat calendar.ics".

What "g"s?

This is not even necessary, as the time is stored in local time from
evolution. The problem is: the DTSTART and DTEND lines contain
information about the timezone in the evolution, but not in the
korganizer file version:



Therefore the pattern matching in your script does not work on the
evolution file: It must not match the string after "DTSTART", but the
string on the line after the line beginning with "DTSTART" (and now tell
me how to express that in perl... ;) ).
