Thank you!  Works.  I have a few more questions!  I am working on 
converting a program from perl to PHP as it is the new language of choice
at our office.

I have been using printf statements in perl to format data.  Is there a 
similar funtion in php?  Here is an example from the perl program:

printf NEW      ("%-5.5s",$fields[14]);

This will print exactly 5 characters, I also use this format to make sure
the lines are exactly 255 characters long:

printf NEW      ("%-193.193s");

Is there something similar in php.  Thanks for everyone's help and
