I have nothing against Python, other than I don't know it, and as
yet, I've not seen a reason to learn yet another scripting language.
Perl was specifically designed with text munging in mind, and since
that's what I spend most of my life as a sysadmin doing, I'm pretty
good at it.

If you don't want a Perl solution, that's fine. I'm simply offering
to help with something that finally seems to match my programming
capabilities. I take no offense if decline the offer, since that
just means I get sit around here and do nothing some more ;)

	It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.
	 If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
