Why can't you install modules? There are few real reasons for not installing them and instead reinventing the wheel.

    One of the scripts in question is being run on offsite systems, which have a default perl config (in house Solaris packaged perl build) that has a very limited number of additional modules. The last time we got the package rebuilt with an additional module, it took 6 months from request to distribution - and that was a critical requirement. Anything not considered critical would be more trouble than it's worth from my POV.

    I suspect that's one of the few reasons for reinventing the wheel :)

    One of the other scripts I'm considering for this may be better to use a different method, since I'm considering contributing it to the SpamAssassin project - meaning it would probably be best to use Config::Inifiles or YAML (XML would be a real learning curve at this point, but not something I'm opposed to).
