FWLIW I am fairly good with awk so if you would like some help with
mangling the data I'd be happy to do what I can. Since the data
essentially has a very ridged layout it shouldn't be to difficult to
hack it up. Then you can use a2p to convert it to perl code for use
with the xml parser or whatever.
I originally learned perl back in the early 90's by writing awk scripts
to do things then running them through a2p. Perl is a wonderfully
powerful language but there are time when it's just easier to write 2
lines of awk than 25 lines of perl.
Paradise; can it be all I heard it was?
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there.
