in reply to Reactionary Coding—One-Shot Programs

I recently wrote a (one shot) program at work. I am not a programmer, but this program does make life a little easier. I showed it to my boss to see what he thinks, and he mentioned that other groups will probably want to use something like this too. My problem is that I don't have the skill necessary to write a program such as that to be easily changed to work with the formats that other groups use. I would have to basically change all my If statments. My point, I would probably make all my scripts easlily useable in other areas if I knew what I was doing. But I guess that will come with time, right now I'm happy just getting my programs to work the way I want them to, even if they are ugly.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it, unless I'm wrong in which case I will probably change it ;~)
