After some active years on P.M I moved on to a product that prefers Lua and Java to Perl. The little Perl I was still using was pretty simple so no need to seek help for a while. I was also busy learning new languages so did not have the time to drop in here to lend a hand.

Now however I am heading back into a Perl heavy environment, so hopefully I will be around a bit more.

Update

Wow! It really is good to be back. First question posted got several solid answers in minutes. I repent for straying down the path of Lua/Python

Cheers,
R.
