Thanks for the suggestions! I'm going to research your proposed solutions. I did see your module when doing a CPAN search, but the naming didn't make it obvious that it could create fixed-length strings as well as read them.

I have a related suggestion for your module. Please consider creating a new parameter to new called "justify" to ease the creation of records where every field must be right-justified.

It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.
