in reply to Okay I have cleaned it up a little bit

I was kind of looking forward to Kevin_Raymond's next post, but this is a bit of an anti-climax.

At the risk of actually giving sound advice, I think you need ksh rather than the full power of Perl.

    thanks robot tourist - I actually took your advice and went with KSH after doing a little research I found that this is a useful tool and much better suited for what I was trying to achieve. A coworker showed me "CORN" I automated job scheduler that exists in Solaris. He was kind enough to put the script in there so now it runs every morning! My next task is to write a reporting tool on the internet! or the local company internet I mean. Thanks for the tip

      Some people think that you are systematically posting comments that will set other people off on purpose - this is called "Trolling" and those who act in this way are called "Trolls".

      Judging from your opening comments it seems like you're not doing it on purpose, that you don't understand any of the Perl culture and are trying to break your way in & having a frustrating time doing so. People will correct you without explanation or not take you seriously and perhaps you don't know why. I will try to be more gentle, for the sake of someone else who might be having such a hard time who might come along & read this in the future.

      A coworker showed me "CORN" I automated job scheduler that exists in Solaris.

      In fact that utility is called cron.

      If you are looking at ksh, that is pronounced "Korn Shell", which may be the source of the confusion.

      Now, if you are indeed a Troll, as many have accused you of - then this sort of mistake was made on purpose in order to get people to correct you & draw attention to yourself for whatever reason.

      If that was the case then having a signature that asks people to "please respect" a controversial leader could also be considered to be inflammatory and perhaps was calculated for that effect. It also could be the heartfelt signature of a GOP constituent. Since it's not easy to tell the difference, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt if only to retain a sense of decorum in the monastery.

      Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

      For more trolling experience:

      ***please respect President Bush***


      Update: Ok, due to negative reactions as evidenced by massive downvoting, I repent and <strike> over the above, not because I think that my rethorical/sarcastic question is not legitimate -actually I think it is-, but because if the OP is really a troll as facts now strongly suggest, then fighting trolling by means of further troll-feeding is not going to be a particularly smart strategy. BTW: the same fate will affect my other node of the same nature.
