    But sometimes it's like putting socks on a chicken. You never get anywhere, and it annoys the chicken.

      And yet sometimes it simply must be done.
        I grew up in the city so please excuse my ignorance. Under what circumstances must one put socks on a chicken?

[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.
[ambrus]: Discipulus: oh sure. the input data has different filenames every time I get them.
[ambrus]: the directory structure may be 1, 2, or 3 deep, it may have spaces in the filename or not, it has dates in various format, different keywords for the same meanings, and the dates and other keywords are assembled in various ways.
[Discipulus]: no ambrus by specification i mean for example license per core instead of per socket, so fields are different
