Please make sure your question makes sense by itself, people are a lot less likely to be motivated to help it they have to go to many other places in order to help. I think a lot of the people here are more than willing to help on most things Perl-related, but only if you make it easy for us to help you.

Your scratchpad is a great place to store code for when people need to give it a quick look due to a Chatterbox conversation, but when the question is actually posted the code should be included. As well as making it easier to answer it means the node will still have value long after your scratchpad has been changed.

I'd recommend you post the actual code you have and the goal you're trying to achieve into this thread, this way we'll be able to see them both easily and may be able to help.

[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
