Yes thanks for your reply and I do take onboard that things will
get easier as I learn a bit more Perl. Thanks for pointing me
to the coding standards. I do currently follow our own works
coding standards which are very similar.

I can not for the life of me understand why people do not
use strict and warnings. That's like turning up the stereo
in your car so you don't here the engine grinding through lack of oil.
What do you mean there is something wrong with my car, its
moving isn't it. Yes but only just and when will it blow up?
Don't get me wrong it isn't Perl I dislike. I come from a
VB background a have found the use of regular expressions
unbelievably powerfull and now use them in VB which is now
availble by referencing the VBScript library.
Thanks for your Comments I'll stick at it and may yet be converted!
