    Thanks, Dave. Interview went well. The company uses Perl to compile data from clients and then add them to documents of various filetypes and formats, ship them or email them back. He wants me to make a project extracting data from a few txt and pdf files and compile them into a new pdf file. I noticed some posts and examples of such tasks on here, so I am getting started on that..

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
