in thread Convert MDB File To Txt File

update

I just discovered this one: Openoffice.org, which is available on both windows and *nix, apparently has an experimental .mdb reader and it can write in many formats.

Did you read the second sentence of my reply? It specifies what to do if you don't have Access. Did you follow the links in that second sentence? They go to the documentation for the modules that will help you do what you want. Did you read that documentation and get stuck? If so, tell us what part you're stuck on and we'll be glad to help. You also need to tell us what OS you are using since the specifics of the answer differ depending on whether you are on windows or not.

[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
[Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
[Eily]: if so, most subs start with my (VARIABLES) = @_ anyway
[moritz]: for short subs, I sometimes let them work on $_[0] directly
[Eily]: moritz but that should be fine unless you modify them
