in thread Matching and combining two text files

Thanks, GrandFather, I suspected as much, about the hash, but my experience is a bit limited with them, as such, I had a hard time envisioning how to match up the keys/values, although now it seems obvious. Yes, the company I'm working for is using a db, I'm actually writing the code to put it there (create a .csv out of all collected data), unfortunately in doing so, I have to deal with about a half a million records, even a small chunk of that to work on and test, is mind boggling.

Half of the time, since I began working as a Perl programmer *sniff....koolgirl's growing up...*, I feel brilliant, the other half of the time, I feel like a complete dumb a$#. I guess it evens out eventually?
