in thread CGI Program To Delete Old Data From MySQL Table?

I didn't downvote above but probably should. A sarcastic answer to punish one lazy hacker might bite neophyte seekers down the road who will ask with tears in glassy eyes: WHY? WHY DOES TEH PERL DO THIS TO ME?

    1) Thank you for not downvoting it further... :-). A ++ for that.

    2) To the question: Everybody will answer: It wasn't perl doing it to you. It was this bad SQL. ;-)

    3) One lesson is also: Don't do copy&paste without understanding what you're copying from elsewhere.

    4) Another lesson: Formulate your wishes precisely: My solution does what was requested. The word only was missing in the initial question.

    Now, I'll see how much penance I have to do for my sarcastic sin... :-)

    Regards
    McA
