in reply to Got positive experince with excel modules ?

Rather than the awkward, binary and proprietary native Excel format, you might want to consider producing ODF documents, e.g. with OpenOffice::OODoc. Recent versions of Microsoft Excel support the ODF format.

[erix]: cool
[Cosmic37]: thank you Lotus I understand
[Cosmic37]: now I have tried another blunder - can anyone explain why I am such a dunderhead?
[Cosmic37]: if ( $line =~ /$mydt/ ) { print $line; }
[Cosmic37]: I try to match successive date times stored in variable $mydt
[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
