in thread unpack() removing data

Instead of using qx//, use a piped open whereby you can binmode the handle before importing the data:

open PIPE, '-|', 'sg_logs --page=0x34,1 pd1 -H -r' or die $!; binmode PIPE; my $data = do{ local $/; <PIPE> }; close PIPE;

[james28909]: consolidate the three subs into one
[Lady_Aleena]: Um, what?
[james28909]: check is is data or hash or array and do tasks then return needed data
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, you might want to look at the other two on my scratchpad.
[james28909]: after you send to a sub, you can check if it is array or ref ect with ref
[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
