in reply to Perl is my cast iron pan

Hi,

 

Nice Analogy. I recently came across this article: http://www.drdobbs.com/open-source/why-i-use-perland-will-continue-to-do-so/240148364 . Good read. :)

Update: Fixed the broken link. Sorry for the delay. Been working on another automation work for capturing hardware failures using...Perl :) Will post it here soon.

    Thanks -- I read that article last week some time; his experience was similar to mine.

    BTW, your link to the Dr. Dobb's article is broken -- you probably need to enclose it in square brackets.

[erix]: the annoying thing is that during setup of the 'foreign table' you have to specify all the columns. But that is reasonably automatable (just reading header line, and contruct the needed CREATE FOREIGN TABLE' statement)
[erix]: it may be easier to just slurp your fils into regular tables. Has other infrastructure advantages also (indexes, constraints etc)
