Out of curiosity, what was their reaction to your explanation? And what's wrong with taking 6 months either way ;)

    Their reaction was guarded, but optimistic. It is a major shift in their thinking. But, they were really happy with the idea that they would definitely be able to get it done in six months. *laughs*

    As for taking six months ... there's nothing wrong in doing that, except if all you have to show for your efforts is three weeks of work, you either suck and/or overengineered the effort. Neither is a "Good Thing"(tm).

[davido]: Using the -i switch causes Perl to rename the input file, read from it, and write to a file using the original file's name. If there's an extension provided, as in -i.bak, it's easy to see where the input file is. Where is the input file temporarily....
[davido]: placed if there is no extension provided to the -i switch?
[davido]: Nevermind, found the answer.
[davido]: If no extension is supplied, and your system supports it, the original file is kept open without a name while the output is redirected to a new file with the original filename. When perl exits, cleanly or not, the original file is unlinked.
[haukex]: doc says "If no extension is supplied, and your system supports it, the original file is kept open without a name ..."
