Yep, that certainly works! Cheers! I'm going with broquaint's solution however.
Interesting problem :) What's this for, if I can ask?
Yeah, sure. I've got to process some (well, lots of) PDF files. I'm converting them to .xls (Excel) format with PDFConverter, then processing the file with Spreadsheet::ParseExcel. Even though PDFConverter's pretty good, it doesn't always cope with some tables, leaving me a mess similar to my example data.
