Actually, mrmick, I'm still in your previous stage. I have only known perl for about 3 months or so, and am just beginning to realize what you just mentioned. Do you have any advice from your trials and tribulations? I still have yet to learn packages (who needs to write one when you are only using the program once :) )

    At first, when I realized that my programs were going into 'outer space', I moved everything named *.pl into a single directory so I would know where everything was. After this, when I needed the program again, I would modify it so thqt it could be called from other Perl programs and do what I needed it to do. After a while, it became evident that I needed to document what was there so I creted a little text document to tell me which program did a particular function for me. This was before I learned POD. :-)

    There are better ways to organize what you have... just find the one that works for you.
