So the next step is the one I had prepared for originally: Parsing email files. NBD, I've got most of the code for this written (specifically one beefy little sub that scans the file, snips out the from/to/subj/body, etc.) Just need to modify the sub so that it only returns from/to/subj/time/length and then make the script dump this in a CSV database.
"Que?" you say. "CSV? Greg, isn't there already some database server in place?"
Yes, there is. Do I know how to get to it? Not yet. I want a working solution ASAP, and I can build something to drop the CSV data into an actual database later in twenty minutes. Right now I need to get cracking on three major things.
I love it when a plan starts to come together...
