in reply to My "if" is failing!

Before the if and after branching, add
warn "$_, $sw.\n";
to see what's really going on if you are lazy to run the debugger. The regex must work the same regardless of the else part being commented or not.

    OK, will try the debugger. I am still figuring out how to do a lot of this, thanks!

[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: those are good rules.
