in reply to Behind the Scenes - Perl Variables

Hello Gurus of PERL: I have a similar question regarding PERL scalar variables. I have a program that is processing email headers. It connects to a POP server, pull the email header info, and the aim it to write it to mySQL. Using an email client like thunderbird, all the content is in the message. However, when I use my program to retrieve and display the messages, no matter what the header content is, only about the first 770 characters stored and display. Is there a limit on the number of characters in a PERL scalar variable like $headers ? Thanks, Wes
