    I have a small project that needs a Perl Master. The program needs to be able to do the following

    1) Read from a comma delimited file.
    2) Use the information to make a query to a website,
    3) The web site will send back info in XML format the info I need.
    4) That info should be parsed back into another comma delimited file.

    Thats it.
    I have about 50K entries so I just want to fire and forget until its done. It should be throttlable as not to overload the server. Reply to the thread or PM me for more info. Its not that hard.. but I don't know scripting.

    I don't need a sub but I know Perl pretty well.

    1. No problemo.
    2. How is the site queried? Direct query to a CGI script on the back end, or are you wanting to use a form action on the site to submit the data?
    3. Is the website already doing this piece? So basically the script just needs to be able to get the data?
    4. Ok.
