Opening Hundreds Of Data Bases
I talking about flat file data bases.
I have a folder with about 900 data bases in it. Periodicaly each data base needs to be filtered for duplicates. Thanks to kanji I have a great duplicate checker . How can I open each one of the data bases and filter them for duplicates, then print the filtered information back to the data bases.
I thought maybe doing a foreach loop to open them all, but how would I read the files into unique arrays so that the same information will be printed back.
Will perl allow something like this?
