in thread search data structures using SQL

Do you have a personal laptop?

Install perl. Generate some data that mirrors the nature and size of your work data. Write the program that throws it into an sqllite db and queries every which way using sql.

Show you boss. Tell him how long it took you. Tell him how long it would take you do it without the modules you used. Ask him to ask one of your colleagues to give a similar estimate.

I worked one place where I knew up-front such a demonstration would have been taken very badly and I wouldn't have tried it, but most places it stood a chance of making things better.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    Thanks. For reasons which would not fit in the margin of this internet, I cannot do what you said. But your advice will, I'm confident, help another monk in the future. :-)
