in reply to When I discuss scripting with family/friends, they...

I don't discuss it with them anymore. It's just not worth it, really. My friends are very non-technical, by and large, and ten seconds into any such talk, I get the MEGO stare (My Eyes Glaze Over).

[atcroft]: PriNet: Those code bits worked for me, with test hashes, but I didn't test it with more than a few simple test cases. *shrug* Had hoped it would help, at least.
[PriNet]: i think i found the problem, the "source" array that sets the individual key values isn't being cleared, it's keeping the previous values...
[atcroft]: PriNet: You might consider posting a small, self-contained snippet of that segment of your code, and see if someone else has a better idea.....
[atcroft]: PriNet: Ahhh... interesting.
[PriNet]: small would be a problem *heh*... the program reads all the lines from a pdf and converts the individual colum data to a seperate key/value pair... that's where the "previous" array from the pdf is not being cleared properly before reading the next pdf
