Please make sure your question makes sense by itself, people are a lot less likely to be motivated to help it they have to go to many other places in order to help. I think a lot of the people here are more than willing to help on most things Perl-related, but only if you make it easy for us to help you.
Your scratchpad is a great place to store code for when people need to give it a quick look due to a Chatterbox conversation, but when the question is actually posted the code should be included. As well as making it easier to answer it means the node will still have value long after your scratchpad has been changed.
I'd recommend you post the actual code you have and the goal you're trying to achieve into this thread, this way we'll be able to see them both easily and may be able to help.
