in reply to Column Data to Row Data

I am sure there would be something out there on cpan which would do the table manipulation, or some very clever one liner, but I don't see any problem with your approach - it is simple, readable and in six months time you'll still know what it is doing... TIMTOWDTI, but the important thing is that it works!(disclaimer: admittedly I am assuming your way works, I haven't tested it, but it looks like it should work...).

Maybe it could be wrapped in a subroutine, or made into an object/method, but in principle your approach is sound.

Without trying to be your Perl-shrink, why does it feel wrong? Nothing wrong with simple.

Just a something something...

    Haha. That's exactly what I wanted, a Perl-shrink. I honestly don't know why. I was just staring at my code and I kept asking myself if I could do this better. Not that I needed to or for performance reasons, but because it just "felt" bad. Maybe I need to up my meds :) Thanks for the reassurance. I guess I'm just officially crazy now.
