My name is Eyi, and I'm trying to learn Perl. I first started learning programming a year ago, and I learnt C++. Last Summer, I had to do my project in C# so I ended up learning that too. So I thought, I know C++ and C#, I'm good to go! Now I have to learn Perl. It's been pretty straighforward so far, and for that I'm grateful. But I've been stuck in a rut for two days and I need help! I've been using a book, "Perl: Your Visual BluePrint for Building Perl Scripts" and I think it is a good book. I ordered another book online but it hasnt come yet. Basically, my challenge right now is to find a way of * reading in the data in a particular column of the sheets of an excel file * searching through two lists of names for close matches, not exact matches. So if anyone happens to come by here and see this, and you have an answer, please please leave me a comment and I'd really really appreciate it! Thank you! eyidearie 2005-07-07T15:04:02+00:00 journal
