Note: Beware! Default reply-to is to the list.

Hi, Francois,

that looks like a great one-liner!

... but that isn't the only problem, only the one problem remaining
after the others have been solved which is why I used the Text::Format
module. I have got all sorts of things cooked up in the modules options.

I get my output delimited from my postgresql database (it was you that
recommended that years back, right?) and my script processes that
and gives me near-catalogue format. I'll tweak that when I have solved
this to give me html and tex formats too.

So I don't see that I can put a one liner in the module, but I'll give
it a whirl this evening, expecting that it will wreck the neat output of
the Text::Format module :) - on the outputted file, that is.

thanks to all for all the input. if I can't get it to work then I'll
try one of the larger perl sources. will keep you posted.

Anne
