( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This is my last day at my web programming internship at Motorola. One of the jobs I had to do was develop a Perl script that interfaces a shopping cart application with an SAP database. I never saw Perl before and was still able to develop the software. Perl is really easy to learn.

My script runs on an old fashion web server ( an external server and an internal server with a firewall between). I can only run it on the internal so my script has to synchronize all of the orders on both servers, reformat them, and get them into an SAP system. I had to write logic that not only reformats the output of the shopping cart app but figure out how to create new records and fields based on the data given. There were so many exceptional cases that had to be considered in the logic.

I recieved good advice from this web page about NET::FTP. Thanks for the help. This web site rules. I wish there were sites like this one for all kinds of languages. If you ask for help in a C/C++ chat room you will definately get flamed by some teenager who doesn't even know what polymorphism is. Thanks again.
