in reply to filtering my own output

I recommend Filter::Handle. I think it will do exactly what you want. I used it for the very same purpose -- to log the output a script without changing print statements, etc. Here's a sample script.
#!/usr/local/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Filter::Handle qw/subs/; #open the logfile open (LOGFILE,">>test.log") || die "open: $!"; #set up a sub to filter our output #print @_ to LOGFILE then also print it to STDERR Filter \*STDERR, sub { local $_ = "@_"; print LOGFILE scalar(localtime), ": $_"; $_ +}; #test it out by printing something to STDERR print STDERR "hello world\n"; #turn off filtering UnFilter \*STDERR; close LOGFILE || die "close: $!";
When run, this produces the following output:
/home/rhet/misc> ./ hello world /home/rhet/misc> cat test.log Thu Sep 6 11:46:24 2001: hello world /home/rhet/misc>

[PriNet]: i think i found the problem, the "source" array that sets the individual key values isn't being cleared, it's keeping the previous values...
[atcroft]: PriNet: You might consider posting a small, self-contained snippet of that segment of your code, and see if someone else has a better idea.....
[atcroft]: PriNet: Ahhh... interesting.
[PriNet]: small would be a problem *heh*... the program reads all the lines from a pdf and converts the individual colum data to a seperate key/value pair... that's where the "previous" array from the pdf is not being cleared properly before reading the next pdf
[atcroft]: PriNet: It was a thought....
[PriNet]: thanx... actually just having someone to talk to was making me think... *heh*
[PriNet]: a regular array would just be "delete @array" correct? no need for the post "()" ?
