Hello illuminated ones,
I have the following problem:
My Perl script uses a local file as a database for some task. The file is nothing fancy - just a plain ASCII file with entries separated by empty lines. The master copy of this file is available on the Web. I would like to make sure that my local copy is up-to-date - i.e., matches the master copy.
Is there a CPAN module or something for that sort of task - or do I have to re-invent the wheel? The task seems basic enough to me, so I thought that probably somebody has already solved it before - but I couldn't find anything useful...
