    Damn. It was like you were reading my mind or something.

    I was sitting at my desk this morning ticked off that I had to wait for some lackey somewhere to re-run data that was supposed to be checked 'BEFORE' it came to me for PerlMagic(tm), and I stated out loud..

    "I need small projects to keep me busy"

    I reached out and got my "Data Abstraction and Problem Solving with C++" book down and decided to tackle the problems in it with Perl.

    but this is even better. Thanks.
