in thread DBD::CSV and really bad legacy flat file
I need to duplicate the functionality of an existing script which is entirely self contained and uses no modules of any kind and is written with a perl4 mindset and is a PITA to maintain and update and modify.
How the data is handled doesn't matter as long as it stays in the same format, as far as my boss is concerned. I don't have any problems with the duplication of functionality, it's just parsing the data with existing modules rather than writing my own, which almost always takes longer, which is what my boss doesn't want.
