Perl hack deluxe

My second Perl hack grabs, parses and inserts data into a database table... a TV-programming chart... dollar sign separated text file... quite weird format... but it works. I'm really satisfied with the db-code...

Perl is quite sexy... I'm considering writing a parser for the newspaper website as well, as that flow (articles) currently goes through a buggy Java app... which requires manual login, sacrifices of goats and assorted black magic to even work... the company who wrote the damn app claims it requires X Windows as ImageMagick needs that to run... bogus claims ... as IM does not require that at all. Everything they do in Java, I can do in Perl... even without a X Windows console.
