Did you actually test that? I'm pretty sure Perl doesn't like dashes in variable names:

    % perl -e '$foo-bar = 1;'
    Can't modify subtraction (-) in scalar assignment at -e line 1, near "1;"
    Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.

You are quite correct; I just copied the OP's variable names. He has since sent me a copy of the script and it does use '_' rather than '-' so I guess it was a typo in his e-mail.

Thanks for pointing it out.
